I hope though that some day I can continue in it. Theatre work has been in the past a lot more rewarding for me than motion pictures. I’ve never done very much in the picture business. But I like making pictures best. I got my start in theatre in 1938 in Weston Vermont Summer Theatre. Those were happy days full of promise. I am an old New Englander, born in Framingham Mass.” In overall fine condition.
