Personal Quote:

I'll tell you what it's like to be No. 1. I compare it to climbing Mount Everest. It's very difficult. Lives are lost along the way. You struggle and struggle and finally you get up there. And guess what there is once you get up there? Snow and ice. See more »

Trivia:

In 1967, in what was considered a major gamble at the time, Merrick recast his hit production, "Hello, Dolly!," with an all-black cast led by Pearl Bailey and Cab Calloway. It revived what had been flagging interest in the show, which went on to run another four years. See more »
