#Quote
1Singers don't last. Out of perhaps 500 pictures a year, about 25 are musicals. You've got to keep working to amount to anything in Hollywood.
2I've been told that when I start my radio program people will assume that I am an Oriental, since they can't see me. The fact remains that the performance is what counts; names don't mean anything.
#Fact
1Was honorably discharged at the end of WWII as a Lieutenant with the Coast Guard.
2According to Laura Wagner, in her article on the actor for the Films of the Golden Age, Winter 2013/14 issue, although Ching's surname obviously sounds Asian influenced, he was of prominently English heritage and the name was actually a derivative of the English village of Chingford near London.
3Left the film business in 1959 and became a very successful real-estate agent.
