The Brave and the Bold

"Mort [Weisinger] and I got along with in a business way, but it was an awful time. If you shook in your boots, especially in those days, they would jump all over you. When he was very rude to [Jerry] Siegel, I told him, "You wouldn't be sitting behind that desk if he hadn't created Superman, you know." I never kept my voice down. When they wanted me to do something over I would say, "Whatever I give you is the best I can do." My attitude was, they're not bosses, they're editors."
