# Quote
1 [on his on- and off-screen chemistry with Yvonne De Carlo, who played Lily Munster]: Yvonne would be a maternal influence. She’d be a mom because my mom wasn’t around, so she’d be a matriarch, not only on the show, but when I’d see her outside of the makeup on Mondays and Tuesdays. Once in a while, she’d bring her kids down to the set.
2 [Of Yvonne De Carlo]: Yvonne De Carlo had a husband, who was a stuntman, who was hurt, very, very badly, in the stunt, in the movie, ‘How The West Was Won.’ His name was: Bob Morgan. When that happened, Lily dropped into television, cause she did ‘The Ten Commandments,’ she was before with Cecil B. DeMille, and when she did ‘The Munsters,’ it was really a step down for her; because she was a moviestar. The moviestars didn’t do television, back then, so, she had to become the breadwinner for her household, because her husband was hurt; and I thought, she was a very strong woman to do that and she had her handsful of these 2 guys from New York, as they were practical jokers and pranksters. I think the fact that she was a moviestar, they took great fun in trying to annoy her. But, she held her own and it became a strong matriarch of the family; and I think the fact that she was up, against the 7 ft. tall Frankenstein – 6’3″, Jewish, drafted in cigars and held her own, so there was a lot about her character.
3 [Of Fred Gwynne and Yvonne De Carlo] They aren’t just wonderful people, but they were really good actors and actresses, but they were nice people, as well, they made it fun to go to work with. And being the only kid, having the producers from Leave It to Beaver (1957), prior to that. It was a kid-friendly show.
4 [on his on- and off-screen chemistry with Fred Gwynne and Yvonne De Carlo, who played both Herman and Lily Munster respectively] While they were alive, we saw each other and it was always fun. We certainly had a good time when we worked together.
5 [When Yvonne De Carlo was the last-minute replacement to play Lily Munster] I have to interject something here. I never really thought about this, but can you imagine the difference of The Munsters (1964) opening clip with Fred Gwynne as “Herman Munster” and then Joan Marshall as “Phoebe”? It doesn’t have the same impact as Yvonne De Carlo as “Lily”. I mean, they really got a good punch with Yvonne De Carlo. I was just sort of substituting for the other kid and I did a pretty good job, but I think that the real slip in the last-minute crew was getting Yvonne De Carlo, major screen star, to play television.
6 Most of my memories weren’t really while filming, but running around the back lot, going to the laboratory, where they were making all of the monsters for the other movies, in the makeup department, and the special effects department. That’s what I enjoyed.
7 [on working on the Donna Douglas project] Believe it or not. I’ve had a hard time developing financing.
8 [on making $600 a year at Universal Studios] They put makeup on me, and that was the character. I used the back lot as my private little entertainment center.
9 I straightened my own life out in my own time. Maybe I should have gone to rehab, but I didn’t. A little man inside me said it was time to get my life in order.
