Document signed: "Clifton Webb", 1 page, 5½x3. No Place, No Date. I Owe You made out for $187.00 in Webbs hand for Opening Night. Clifton Webb (1891-1966) sang, danced and acted exclusively on stage until 1944, when he earned the first of his three Oscar Nominations for Laura. The other Oscar bids came for The Razor's Edge (1946) and The Baby Sitter (1948). For the latter, Webb developed his best remembered character, the pompous, irritable bachelor, Mr. Belvedere. Webb's mother Mabelle (1869-1960) moved to New York with "little Webb", as she called her son, in 1892. They lived together until her death. Webb, a discreet homosexual, never married. His obsessive grief over his mother's death prompted close friend Noel Coward to say, "It must be difficult to be orphaned at seventy." Webb never recovered from Mabelle's death, making one more film and then living the rest of his life in seclusion. He is buried next to his mother. Toned and lightly creased. Top edge torn and worn. Corners worn. Otherwise, fine condition.
