If it's boring, then it's tiring.
They kept me in short pants as long as they could, until they were shaving the hair on my legs because it was beginning to photograph.
They had to start shaving my chin when I was 12 years old because light started to pick it up.
I never say too much about that in public interviews, because it disappoints the public to tell them you're not that crazy about a property you did that possibly they liked.
In those days, even as a boy, I watched some people that I knew were living way beyond their means.
So then you have to say to yourself: Do I want to be rich, or do I want to do good work?
I hope this series is good work, but it is in the half-hour medium, which is limited to a kind of mediocrity that sponsors are just dying to have right now, and the public, for some reason, is unconsciously demanding.
I just knew how to do the one thing I did, and whether I did it well or not depended on who the director was.
People like Spencer Tracy held up because they had the background originally, but to this day they never have changed Mr. Gable's role, or most of them.
So if I keep making mistakes on Broadway or tape or film, producing, directing or acting, I can go along and do it - so long as I'm not investing too much capital in these things.
I would also like to act, once in a while, but not get up every morning at 5:30 or six o'clock and pound into the studio and get home at 7:30 or eight o'clock at night, or act over and over and over every night on Broadway, either.
A lot of people like to run in plays because it's a nice, steady job.
From that, I became very anxious to produce something of my own.
To me, the series was the end of the actor, when the series ended.
A nice, steady job I don't need that bad. I'm not that satisfied with it.
