HOUSE PETERS, JR.
The "Mr. Clean" actor's fragmented letter, recalling his auditions with Ben Bard. Dated in 1999.
Autograph letter fragment signed: "House Peters Jr./1999" in blue ink, 1 page 8½x11. Last page of letter. No place, no date, fragment in full: "...Or walking using that lone chair as your only prop. And what ever you had memorized, such as Shakespeare Hamlet, 'Oh what a rouge and peasent [sic] slave am I,' you no sooner would get into it when Mr. Bards voice would be heard giving a cue from something entirely different perhaps a judicial courtroom a prosiquitor [sic] grilling a defendant." Ben Bard (1893-1974) was an American actor and acting teacher in Hollywood. House Peters, Jr., born Robert House Peters, Jr. (1916-2008), played the original "Mr. Clean" on a string of early TV commercials for the product. The son of actor House Peters, he had begun his film career in "B" Westerns and went on to play supporting characters and villains over the next 32 years. Known as "Junior" or "Juny" by his friends, Peters also served in the U.S. Army Air Corps' Air Sea Rescue section during WWII. Upon returning home after the war, he found work in both films and on television, but Peters left show business in 1965 (after finishing an episode of Lassie) - keeping a promise to himself that he would leave the business if he hadn't achieved star status by age 50. House, who then went into the real estate business in the San Fernando Valley, had appeared in a number of films, including Ace Drummond (1936), Adventures of Frank and Jesse James (1948), Cow Town (1950), Gene Autry and the Mounties (1951), The Red Badge of Courage (1951), Lorna Doone (1951), The Day the Earth Stood Still (1951), Red Planet Mars (1952), Strategic Air Command (1955), Rebel Without a Cause (1955), Johnny Tremain (1957), Rio Conchos (1964) and The Great Sioux Massacre (1965, his last film). After making his television debut in 1950 on The Gene Autry Show, Peters guest starred on such series as Adventures of Wild Bill Hickok (1951, 1952), The Cisco Kid (1952), Death Valley Days (1953), Fury (1956), The Roy Rogers Show (1956, 1957), Broken Arrow (1958), M Squad (1959), Gunsmoke (1959, 1961), Wagon Train (1958, 1961, 1962) and Perry Mason (1964).
