Kenneth Kaye

  • “We would keep up the front of this totally problemless, happy-go-lucky group. There might have been a tremendous battle in our home, but if someone from outside came in, it would be as if the director yelled, ‘Roll ’em.’ We’d fall right into our stage roles. You’d get to wondering which was the true thing. It’s an awfully big load to carry, to be everyone’s fantasy family. How long can you keep protecting that image and never let any of the outside world in?” — David Nelson, interviewed in 1971 about “The Adventures of Ozzie and Harriet”
