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.
