I loved making motion pictures because you play such different, varied roles. Now, nobody wants to be a failure in the theater, you want it to be a success. But if you have a success, you are honor-bound and contractually bound to stay with it. If it runs a year, oh, dear Lord, you are bored with that. No matter how great the part is. You get tired of doing and saying the same thing. And I like the variety of film roles, so I just sort of stuck with the motion-picture field.
