RICHARD BELZER SAID: "Reagan to me is a creation of Hollywood. I mean--he's a Hollywood president. He's like a science-fiction creature. Because Reagan got elected to the presidency--he got shot--he came back. They took 3 feet out of his colon--he came back. They took a little piece off his nose--he came back. They drilled a hole in his head--he came back. He's like Jason from FRIDAY THE 13TH. You can't stop this guy. Lock your doors--it's Reagan."

JONATHAN SCHWARTZ SAID: "The comedian Milton Berle used a piece of business on television that can tell you something about Andrea Simon that by 1956 had become, within her, a creative act. Berle, after telling a joke, would extend his left arm out to the audience, palm out, saying: stop, no applause, no applause. But down below his hip, the fingers of his right hand were wiggling back and forth, saying: more, more, applause applause, more."
