There is an answer to the moan
of the lawyers for the past week, "We

vein, McNally added, "There can be
no substitute for dramatic work and
training in college, whether one is
planning on the stage as a career or

for the affectations and highly stilted
mannerisms of the theatrical world.
He is far from the type of actor
who would corner the theatrical
world, and leave no room for the
amateur stage. In his own words,
McNally feels that sincerity above all
things is essential to an actor.
