Personal Quote:

"I never got drafted. I almost enlisted when Captain Video and His Video Rangers (1949) went off, but my father and a friend talked me out of it. I got a notice once telling me to be ready to go, but I never got another one until I was married and had a baby, and then I had a 4-A rating. I did a lot of Army training films, though".
