The following quote, ‘Never an actor who took himself too seriously, Mr. Mature was fond of telling how he was rejected for membership in the Los Angeles Country Club because the club did not accept actors. He said that he had replied, ‘’Hell, I’m no actor, and I’ve got 28 pictures and a scrapbook of reviews to prove it.’’’comes from his “The New York Times” obituary. It’s worth the 8 or so minutes to read the rest. He was an interesting man who enjoyed life.
