1964: Wise Words from a 7 year-old. "Say, you had a wife..."

This is a funny clip from the Up! series, one of the most groundbreaking documentaries ever made. It's one of my favorites. Every 7 years, the filmmakers have gone back to interview the same 14 children, one of which is Paul here. They began in 1964 when the subjects were 7. In the latest film, the "children" are 49 years old. By the way, Paul Kligerman is happily married now, and his wife says that he loves greens.

"S-say you had a w-wife they…they…say, you had to eat what they cooked you and…and say I don’t like greens, well, I don’t. And say she said you have to eat what you get--give. So I…I don’t like greens so she gives me greens and that--that’s it."
