Mom was the greatest influence of my childhood. She wanted to save me from the vice, lust, and drinking that was all about me.
In her whole life Mom never earned more than five or six dollars a week. Being without a husband, it was hard for her to find any place at all for us to live.
What broke Mom's heart was realizing that her children knew nothing and cared nothing about the better side of life.
We never had a bathtub. Mom would bathe me in the wooden or tin washtub in the kitchen, or in a big lard can.
Mom never quit on me. My only regret is that she didn't live long enough to share some of the money and comforts my work in show business has brought me.
