      • Ethel Merman told Time magazine in 1949 she wasn't convinced about TV: "I did two shows with Milton Berle. On both of them he had horses in the act — and everything that goes with horses. We were so cramped backstage that I had only a screen for costume changes and an electrician practically held a light over me while I changed...There must be an easier way to make a living."
