    • TRIVIA (0)

    • QUOTES (2)

      • Rich Little: Truman Capote has said publicly that actors are not too bright, now maybe the reason for that is that he has a deep-seated desire to be an actor himself and I'll go along with that. I mean I think there are alot of parts that Truman here could play, for instance I think he would have made a very interesting Hamlet. (in Truman's voice) To be or not to be ... that's always been my question.

      • Dean Martin: Joseph Wambaugh is a Los Angeles Police Officer who also writes best sellers like "The Blue Knight", "The New Centurions" and "The Onion Field". He's so prolific that they just published all his speeding tickets he's issued. Here is badge number 178 Detective Sergeant Joseph Wambaugh.

      • Ted Knight: You know I've always been a great admirer of Truman, ever since he beat Dewey.

        Allusion to the 1948 Presidential candidates Harry S. Truman and Thomas E. Dewey. When Truman won the Presidency over a very small margin.
