Maurice Evans Quotes:

Dr. Zaius: Have you forgotten your scripture, the thirteenth scroll? "And Proteus brought the upright beast into the garden and chained him to a tree and the children did make sport of him."

Priest: Well, now, fertility. Some say it's pagan. But who's not pagan in some matters?
Draco: True, true! I love the speech of scholars.
Priest: These young folks here think of nothing but frolic. "Desist!" I tell them, but they will go a-wantoning. So, lest the Devil take them, I preach them a text from holy writ. "Increase and multiply," I say. "Replenish the earth." And oh! how they obey me.

Edward "Hutch" Hutchins: Pregnant women are supposed to gain, not lose weight!

Maurice Evans Facts
He played more leading roles in "Hallmark Hall of Fame" (1951) television productions of Shakespeare than any other actor, starring in versions of "Hamlet", "Macbeth", "Twelfth Night", "Richard II", "The Taming of the Shrew" and "The Tempest".

Won two Tony Awards: in 1950, a Special Award "for the work he did in guiding the City Center Theatre Company through a highly successful season, " and in 1954, as co-producer (with George Schaefer) of the Best Play winner, "The Teahouse of the August Moon." He was also twice nominated for Tony Awards: in 1957 as Best Actor (Dramatic) for "The Apple Cart" and in 1961 as Best Actor (Musical) for "Tenderloin."

During World War II, he presented a pare-down 90-minute "Hamlet" that became known as the "G.I. Hamlet" as many service members took in the play. Ironically, his first "Hamlet" on Broadway was the first time the play had been presented uncut on the Great White Way.
