The clip is from For Heaven’s Sake (1950) with Gigi Perreau and Edmund Gwenn where Webb and Gwenn are angels and Gigi is a child waiting to be born. Webb does everything he can to make her potential parents want to have a baby. A great, funny movie...though hard to come by. #cliftonwebb #edmundgwenn #gigiperreau #forheavenssake

A few stills from Sitting Pretty, 1948 with Clifto Instagram Photo ImageA few stills from Sitting Pretty, 1948 with Clifton, Roddy McCaskill, Maureen O’Hara, and Robert Young. Clifton told how during the oatmeal scene, a little glitch caused the filming to take longer than expected, “Everyone was very much afraid [Roddy] was going to raise hell, and kick and scream and yell. So, they tied the chair - nailed the chair to the floor, tied him in the chair, removed all cutlery and dishes from in front of him, tied the bowl to his head, and began to pour mush all over him. Instead of crying, he began to laugh, as he was enjoying it thoroughly...as a final resort they turned out all the lights on the stage, and his mother called “good-bye” to him. With this, he began to cry and they took a soundtrack.” Sitting Pretty was a huge hit and grossed over $4,000,000. It earned Webb an Oscar nomination for Best Actor. #cliftonwebb #maureenohara #robertyoung #sittingpretty #mrbelvedere

Clifton never served in the military, and the clos Instagram Photo ImageClifton never served in the military, and the closest he did in film was to play Ewen Montagu, British Naval Intelligence Officer (second photo is the real Montagu) in The Man Who Never Was. Webb did many shows dedicated to the war effort and was a substantial leader in bringing entertainment to the troops. He also showed his patriotism in planting a Victory Garden, “I planted three cornfields, two tomato patches, and all of the various vegetables. I had much more corn than I could possibly eat, so I thought I would sell it. Nobody would buy it, so I thought I’d give it away. So, I’d bring in great bags of corn to various members of the cast, which was very inconvenient for them because if they were going out to supper after the show, they’d have to leave it somewhere.” Clifton even bought a ping-pong table for some Coast Guard boys who had no means of entertainment. ▪️ A big thank you to all the veterans who sacrificed part of their lives, and for some ALL of their life, to selflessly keep those of us at home safe. #cliftonwebb #manwhoneverwas #themanwhoneverwas #ewenmontagu

It was Clifton’s first big movie role and it gave him a bit of shock to see himself on screen. He said: “When I saw myself sitting in the bathtub looking very much like Mohandas K. Gandhi. I felt I might vomit. After it was over [Dana Andrews] saved my life with a big swig of bourbon. The first shock of seeing myself had a strange effect on me, psychologically, as it made me realize for the first time that I was no longer a dashing young juvenile, which I must have fancied myself being through the years in the theatre." #cliftonwebb #genetierney #laura

He told columnist Bob Thomas in 1954: “I cannot do without them [cigarettes]. When the doctor took me to the hospital and diagnosed the ulcer, he told me to quit smoking. I tried for two whole days, and I was miserable. The slightest noise made me jump. Finally the doctor allowed me to smoke as long as I didn’t do it on an empty stomach.” #cliftonwebb

A beautifully written note from Lauren Bacall to C Instagram Photo ImageA beautifully written note from Lauren Bacall to Clifton either right before or after Bogie’s death. It reads: • Darling Clifton - this is just an inarticulate but truly ‘felt’() note to try to thank you for your long friendship, loyalty, and love for Bogie - for seeing him when you did and behaving as you did. I know how hard it was for you but you came • Not sure if there is more to the note somewhere; it seems to end rather abruptly. Webb was a bit of a mess the day he visited the sick Bogie, but he must have been able to control himself enough for Lauren to write what she did. It must have been a hard time for everyone involved watching Bogie go downhill. #cliftonwebb #bogie #humphreybogart #laurenbacall

A well known dancer in his younger years, Clifton Instagram Photo ImageA well known dancer in his younger years, Clifton Webb never danced on screen. Or did he Though he never made a “dancing” picture, Webb still danced in quite a number of his films. His biography claims he only danced in two: Sitting Pretty with partner Maureen O’Hara and Cheaper By the Dozen with Jeanne Crain and Betty Lynn; but this is a still of him dancing in Holiday For Lovers (1959) and though it’s rather short, he still shows that graceful elegance of what I’m sure was an astounding dancer in his prime. He also dances in a few other films, but nothing long or designed to show off his true talent. I really wish Webb had made a dancing picture, but the few clips that exist of him are still fun to watch #holidayforlovers #cliftonwebb #dancer

Director Otto Preminger had Webb come to his office and asked him if he would be interested in making a movie. Webb replied: “It depends entirely on the picture and the part.” Preminger gave him the script to Laura, which Webb read and said “...it was called Laura. So, I read it and obviously realized it was a wonderful part and right up my street.” And so a movie star was born. #cliftonwebb #laura #danaandrews

Clifton was a special friend...cried easily...so there was no point being angry with him. That afternoon, however, he was definitely more of a problem than Bogie ever was.” - Lauren Bacall on Webb visiting Bogie in 1956 before his death.
