I never approached the show business from a sentimental point of view. I never saw it as a romantic and glamorous place. I knew real show business from my father’s line. My father who had been an actor since he left the world of boxing. He was a prize fighter when he first — and a man I never really knew, a man I — allegedly I was face to face with him once when I was about two, three days old — and didn’t meet again until I was an adult, was not allowed to meet him ’til I was an adult. But, I knew of his career through his mother, and I knew he was not very successful, but I didn’t know how good an actor he was. I found out later he was quite a wonderful actor who excelled in the element of simplicity. But because he was one, black, and then blacklisted because of his involvement with labor unions and so on during those years, he just didn’t get work. Certainly not in the areas that Red Channels controlled, which was movies and taped television. He got work occasionally in theater, you know. And he told me when I finally met him, he said, “I’ve not been able to make a living at this, so I want you to know that’s a possibility; that you don’t enter it for the money. You enter it because you love doing the work.”
