Personal Quote:

Trivia:

Clive made a comeback of sorts in "Libel," a courtroom thriller directed by Otto Preminger during which he stayed sober until the company celebrated its 100th performance in Philadelphia with a champagne party. Clive joined it and started the downward spiral of his health, which ended in his death the following year. See more »
