John Dunning Quote

From the beginning, hostilities between Colman and Oboler created an atmosphere of anger, which finally became untenable. The press knew little of this: even a Radio Life reporter, who attended a rehearsal in March, mistook a sharp Oboler dig (What’s the matter, Ronnie, is it too early in the morning to turn on your charm?) for good-natured camaraderie. It was suggested that the series was a partnership, growing out of a mutual admiration. In fact, Oboler revealed to writer Sam Frank, we hated each other’s guts. Their differences existed on almost every front, personal and professional. It began, according to Juliet Benita Colman’s biography of her father, with Oboler’s wardrobe. He worked in dirty dungarees, no socks, thong sandals, and a hat with a grease-stained band—you can imagine Ronnie’s reaction! Colman’s idea of casual dress was an immaculate sweater and well-pressed tweeds.
