"Few people actually know me or take me seriously. I thought success in show business was the answer to everything. It isn`t. I don`t know what is."

 

"I must have been hypnotized by the spotlight. I never realized I was being culturally deprived, that I was having a lousy upbringing. We were too busy making a living to worry about stuff like that."

 

Performed in a family act called "Reed and Hooper" (their parents` names) with brother Bud. Martha (whose real name was Margaret) and Bud so consistently stole the show that the name of the act was eventually changed to "Bud and Margie."

 

Once attended the Professional Children`s School in New York.
