Alan Hale Jr's Quotes

  • Of course, I never met a man who didn't like dad.
  • [Who said of his long career]: I was making a movie in India and they called me "Skipper Sahib".
  • I don't so much enter it, I put it on.
  • [As to how he got into show business]: Well, I've got to say, it was certainly, yesteryear, my parents (of course) ... my mother was on the boards, before any of us. She drives the boards, a long time ago; this was way out of yesterday. Henry Dicksey and all, if you recall, the early Motion Picture, and certainly, early stage and all that sort of thing. She was doing 10 shows, one-night stands, as long ago as that. She was probably like the Shirley Temple of her day, her name was: Gretchen Hartman, and (of course), segued a few years, dad (Alan Hale Sr.) came into the business (of course), and a picture, out of yesterday. D.W. Griffith and all that.
  • [Who said in 1988 about his best remembered role]: I must say, "The Skipper" has become my alter ego. I'm one and the same now.
