The Quintessential Jewish Mother:
Gertrude Berg as Molly Goldberg

MOLLY SPEAKS!
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."
