NEW!!! CLIFTON WEBB AUTOBIOGRAPHY/BIOGRAPHY
By Clifton Webb with David L. Smith
This book will be in print July, 2011. Six chapters were written by
Webb himself before he got "bogged down" and stopped writing. I
have written seven other chapters based on Webb's notes and my own research. No
other biography of this marvelous actor exists. Robert Wagner has written the
foreword. Keep watching this site for more information on this book.
