"Gale Gordon" was an US/American character actor perhaps best remembered as Lucille Ball/Lucille Ball's longtime television foil—and particularly as cantankerously combustible, tightfisted bank executive Theodore J. Mooney, on Ball's second television situation comedy, The Lucy Show. Gordon also had starring roles in Ball's third series Here's Lucy and her short-lived fourth series Life with Lucy. He is remembered for his role as school principal Osgood Conklin in the early 1950s television hit show "Our Miss Brooks," starring Eve Arden. Gordon was also a respected old time radio/radio actor.If you enjoy these quotes, be sure to check out other famous actors! More Gale Gordon on Wikipedia.
I've never been bored in my life working. A lot of people get bored after five minutes. They want to go home and pick up their check. That's never been the case for me. I'm always the first to arrive and the last to leave because I truly enjoy what I'm doing. That's why I've been in show business for so long-I love it!Gale Gordon
I've had high regard for a great many actors. I started out as a serious actor. I didn't start out as a comic actor at all. That just developed because I happened to be louder than anyone else. If they wanted a blowhard character, they called on me. I've had innumerable people that I've respected and venerated.Gale Gordon
Lucille didn't care about messing herself up. A lot of stars of her stature wouldn't do physical comedy because they were afraid they'd get their hair messed up or they'd look bad. I remember once she fell into a vat of green dye. She came out with not only her hair green but everything was green!Gale Gordon
