In an American newspaper article dated 11 December 1966, Mohr is quoted as saying, in relation to his playing of the "heavy" roles: "The best heavies, however, are those actors who play the part with a little humor, a little love of life thrown in. You've got to look like you enjoy the job. When you break a hero's arm ... smile. When you throw sand in his face ... chuckle a little. When you push the old lady down the stairs ... wave good-bye as she goes. Audiences are happiest when they can watch a man who loves his work."
