Gertrude Berg as Molly
Gertrude Berg speaks about Molly Goldberg in a New York Times interview
22 Dec 1940:
"I really am Mollie Goldberg," Mrs. Berg admitted, "for we have so much in
common. We have the same, simple, plain, old-fashioned philosophy, the one
that my grandmother called the golden rule. It is the adjustment to
changes, the sense of proper values, the correct assumption of certain
responsibilities that are essential to the well-being of any family. This
applies very much to the Goldbergs for they are very real people. Perhaps
this is the reason that can explain their steady success. The public tunes
in on our program and knows right away that what is happening to us could
happen to him [sic] too."
