Damn, maybe you're right:

"It should be said that Albert had a prolific acting career in addition to the six years of Green Acres-a dozen Broadway shows and well over one hundred pictures. But when asked which acting accomplishment he is most proud of, he rolls the word "proud" around in his mouth like a foreign object and mumbles it several times before answering honestly, "I don't think I'm proud of anything in acting. I was not really as good as I should have been. And singing"-Albert laughs-"I always thought I was a singer, but I really am not." He decides his time in action during World War II would be his proudest undertaking."
