Personal Quote:

[on directing Bud Abbott and Lou Costello] I found that if we rehearsed too much with them, their material got stale and they'd start adding things that didn't mean anything. All I needed a rehearsal for was to place my cameras. There was nothing I could tell them because no one could direct their routines as well as they. See more »

Trivia:

Possible victim of Efren Saldivar, a respiratory therapist and self-described mercy-killer and "angel of death," who confessed to killing dozens of seriously ill hospital patients by lethal injection at the Adventist Medical Center in Glendale, CA, beginning in 1989. Lubin was in a coma when he died. See more »
