"Who is Tony Randall - this bundle of 'tics', self-confessed 'neurosis' and 'hates'? First of all, of course, he's an actor comedian, of course, of remarkable skills... Born in Tulsa, Oklahoma, to a well-to-do art dealer and a housewife and educated at Northwestern, which he jumped to join New York's Neighborhood Playhouse - Randall is a brilliant, erudite conversationalist. He liberally salts the dialogue with words like 'concatenation' and 'encapsulation'".
Adams generously provided a numerous archive of the actors "hates" and Loves":
"I hate Los Angeles. It's a mass of sprawling mediocrity. And I hate the outdoors. It doesn't suit us. Human beings neither grow pelts nor eat raw foods. Nature created us for indoors...[and] I hate baseball. It's a boring game. Absolutely stupefying. I only go to prove I'm a good American."
