NOTES

On his "Francis" movies, O'Connor told Playbill: "I used to think of it as a bring-down. I'd make a film like 'There's No Business Like Show Business' ... then have to go back and work with a jackass."

"In vaudeville, we all had to pull together, otherwise we never could have made the jumps. When anybody got sick, you stayed with them in the hotel room. Everybody helped one another. But get out on that stage and they'd try to murder you! There was a healthy competition." --Donald O'Connor in Playbill
