QuotesEdit

  • That was the best break of my life, hooking up with the Warners. They don't go much for the "pretty boy" type there. An average-looking guy like me has a chance to get someplace, to portray people the way they really are, without any frills.

  • The only thing I want to do in films is be Mr. Joe Average as well as I know how. Of course, anyone whose face appears often enough on the screen is bound to have bobby-soxers after him for autographs.

  • This is a very complex, wondrous business I'm in. My kicks are my work. I'm miserable when I'm not working.

  • They fascinated me at first. Then suddenly it struck me that their constant snobbish talk about the 'theatah' was a little on the phony side. I decided it give it a try myself, just to show them anyone could do it. Before I knew it, I was getting small parts on Broadway, then bigger ones. Then finally I got some good spots in Dead End and Stage Door and finally took over the lead from Wally Ford in Of Mice and Men.

  • I vote Republican because I am a conservative individual who understands American principles and can think for himself. I'm not one of those blind sheep liberals who'll lie around all day and live off other people thinking the government will spoon feed them.
