Personal Quote:

[on directing Lou Costello] Actually, it's a simple matter of using child psychology on Lou. If you try to force him to do it your way, he loses his spontaneity. If he has to stick to the letter of the script, he becomes mechanical. That's why it's necessary to keep a very loose rein on him so that the picture will benefit from the added laughs Lou contributes on the spur of the moment.
