Personal Quote:

Anything that is the least bit controversial is considered dangerous. The agency men are always worried that some group is going to holler. As a result, real conflicts are missing from TV drama, and instead we have cardboard figures in implausible situations. (from a 1959 interview with the Toronto Star)

Trivia:
