Personal Quote:

[on Tony Randall, 1965]: Randall takes direction beautifully. He filters it through his own mechanism. Some comedians imitate their directors. When you're working with Tony, you feel like a ballet master. His technique is as clean as a chess game. His control is beautiful to watch - an acting lesson for anyone interested in the art of acting. See more »

Trivia:

One of the few directors to successfully make the transition from animation to live-action. One critic noted that he directed his cartoons like live-action films and his live-action films like cartoons. See more »

Trademark:

His cartoons featured quick editing, wild and outrageous gags, and extremely odd angles

Nickname:

Tish

Star Sign:

Pisces
