Charlie How-Come: You don't get the idea, mister. These cops banging those pans, flashing those lights, they're gonna scare that poor cat of mine. Cats are funny, mister. They don't want to hurt you, but if you scare them they go crazy. These cops, they don't know what they're doing.

Abner Biberman Facts
An experienced pilot, Biberman served in the U.S. Air Force during World War II as a flight instructor.

Towards the end of his career Universal Pictures appointed him head of the studio's Casting Department, responsible for casting most of the roles in its film and television productions.

Short, thin, exotic-looking character actor, he could play anything from a South Seas islander to an Indian bandit to a Japanese army officer, but he was cast most memorably as a hood or a convict (such as Louie in His Girl Friday (1940)). Biberman was extremely active as an actor on Broadway from 1934-38, usually working with the more avant garde Group Theatre company before moving to Hollywood as a character actor. He went on to have a busy later second career as a TV director, guiding episodes of everything from "Gunsmoke" (1955) to "Gilligan's Island" (1964).
