Right you are, r1. The character of Lynn Belvedere is said to have been very close to his real life—he had an almost Oedipal-like extreme devotion to his mother Mabelle, who was his companion and who lived with him until her death at 91 in 1990.
When Webb's mourning for his mother continued for a year with no signs of letting up, Noël Coward remarked of Webb, "It must be terrible to be orphaned at 71."

Clifton's mother Maybelle died in 1960, Clifton followed in 1966. Libby Holman, trying to console Webb, said something along the lines of "But Cliffy, at last you're free - think of the fun you can have now!" and he cut her off immediately and never spoke to her again.

According to Robert Osborne (and who knows better?) Webb was considered for the role of Addison DeWitt in "All About Eve" - I wonder if he was considered TOO BIG a star at the time to end up in what is a supporting role.
By 1949-1950, he had already been the lead in Mr. Belvedere, and was first-billed over the title in Cheaper By the Dozen. So to have him in a supporting part was probably not what Darryl Zanuck wanted.

r19, uh, Clifton Webb was gay, you dumb cow. There are lots of verifiable stories about it concerning old Hollywood. For instance, Otto Preminger didn't want him for Laura, initially, because he was a known queen and Preminger thought it would overshadow the role of Lydecker. Other directors had similar concerns but the public ADORED him and he became a big star partly DUE to his personality and his prissy line deliveries.

Alls I was saying is that just because someone projects queen on screen, doesn't mean he's a huge flamer IRL. Plus even he was prissy IRL, there are tons of guys like that who are straight.

Apparently, he was in love with a girl when he was a young man. However, his mother was so overbearing that she didn't approve of the relationship of any kind. I think his mother was kind of nuts. However, he was defiantly gay he wasn't straight. Maybe he went through a faze of trying to be straight. His house was haunted for many years after he and his mother died. However, fairly recently, they tore his home down.
I own some of his personal effects. I own his diary and other items. When I purchased the diary I thought, Oh! there is going to be some juicy gossip mentioned in there, LOL. It still precious to me. Not a chance, the diary was written as a schedule diary. He says, I'm having lunch with Ty at this time then I'm going to this person's party, that sort of thing. He mentions having lunch a lot with Tyrone Power I think because they were filming the Razor's Edge together. He mentions many famous names in the dairy of going to this party or that one.
I wish there is a biography on Clifton Webb, but unfortunately there is absolutely nothing that has been written on him, Go figure?! I think he was an under rated actor. To me I think he was sort of over looked in Hollywood history, which is a shame.

R31, considering your interest in Clifton Webb and the fact that you already own some primary souces, such as his diary, maybe you should attempt to write a biography yourself.
Considering the "bestseller mentality" of most major publishers, I doubt there would be a huge market for a book on Webb, but there are smaller presses that might be interested. Greenwood Press pubishes volumes that start off with 60-100 pages of biography followed by a filmography and bibliography of articles, etc.
Might be a worth a try.

Clifton Webb was great in "Titanic" in which he played the estranged husband of Barbara Stanwyck. Given that they were both gay, their kiss at the lifeboats as the ship is sinking is a wonder to behold.
Webb was also a good friend of Libby Holman and appeared with her on Broadway in a couple of Dietz and Schwartz reviews. I believe he was a houseguest for at least part of the weekend during which Holman's husband, Zachary Smith Reynolds, supposedly killed himself though in all likelihood either Lib or his lifelong friend pulled the trigger.

My favorite is "Sitting Pretty" -- he was smart and a master of devastating put-downs in that one, but not heartless. He could also cut a rug on the dance floor and do a headstand. The battle of wills between Belvedere, a bratty baby, and a bowl of oatmeal is a classic.

THREE COINS IN THE FOUNTAIN
STARS AND STRIPES FOREVER
CHEAPER BY THE DOZEN
THE RAZOR'S EDGE
and I'm also partial to THE MAN WHO WASN'T THERE.
Not necessarily a trailblazer in terms of activism, but he seems to have lived with his gayness as an open secret in Hollywood--it's just the press was more discreet. Still, for any actor who has ever been told he couldn't be a leading man because he wasn't butch enough...just look at Webb's career and see a gallery of the type of roles one could do.
Plus he had some major successes on the Broadway stage: PRESENT LAUGHTER, BLITHE SPIRIT... I imagine him being excellent in those Noel Coward roles as a kind of Coward doppelganger.
And didn't he introduce EASTER PARADR?

There is a bit about him in William J. Mann's book about gay Hollywood (forget the title at the moment).

Mann quotes the casting director at Fox as saying that Webb couldn't play the character because "he flies" (seriously!)

R42 -- you're right -- sorry; thanks for the heads-up.
R43: "This was Marilyn Miller's last show before her death, and the first-ever Broadway show to star an African-American. Ethel Waters received star billing with the Caucasians. She stopped the show with her song, "Suppertime," which is the heartbreaking song of a mother wondering how to tell her children that their father has been lynched. Those were powerful lyrics in those times. In her autobiography Ethel said, "If one song can tell the whole tragic history of a race "Suppertime" is that song."

Douglas Fairbanks Jr writes in his autobiography, that Clifton made a pass at him as Douglas was driving him to some party in Hollywood. Clifton placed his hand on Doug's thigh and more or less confessed his lusty attraction to Doug.
Douglas writes that he burst out laughing at Clifton and Webb got so insulted that he asked to be let out of the car so he could walk the rest of the way to the party. They were estranged for quite a while, but Douglas eventually got Clifton to forgive him for laughing at him.
I also remember reading that Clifton and his good friend Tallulah Bankhead were out clubbing one night and they got into a contest to see who could get a very handsome bartender to go home with one of them for the night. They both eventually lost out to another customer. I think it was in a Bio of Tallulah.

As she was well over 90, gaga, and driving him mad for years, this seems excessive and overindulgent." The most famous remark to go the rounds of Clifton’s friends was Coward’s final, acerbic one to him: "It must be tough to be orphaned at 71!" Clifton, who told friends that he’d seen his mother's presence in the house, held frequent seances in attempts to contact her."

More from same:
"In 1967, the house was purchased by Los Angeles Times gossip columnist Joyce Haber and her TV producer husband Douglas Cramer. Several times, while enjoying drinks by the pool, the two caught sight of a swaying figure in the master bedroom. "It was a dark, transparent shadow the size and shape of Clifton," Cramer said. "I never saw it up close, as Joyce did. I only saw it through a window when I was outside. I didn’t see clothes or details, but he always resembled Clifton and he seemed to be ageless."
Cramer also said he saw shadows in the hallway the size and shape of Mabelle. Their dogs reacted to cold spots in that hallway -- where Clifton was said to pace outside his mother’s bedroom. "They would not go near the cold spots in the hallway without barking enormously and often urinating on the spot," Cramer said. A cold presence was said to have attacked a maid on several occasions. On a hunch, Haber brought home one of Clifton's movies: When the dogs saw his image on the screen, all three began howling.
Haber also held a seance with some of Clifton's friends, including playwright Garson Kanin, actress Ruth Gordon, producer Dick Zanuck. "The seance convinced them all that Clifton was in the house," Cramer said. "And the medium, Sybil Leek, did become Clifton in mood and spirit and intent — and most particularly in language and dialect. She told things that only they knew about Clifton, things that Sybil could never have known." When asked why he stayed, he replied: "Because I’m afraid I’ll be forgotten."
After the seance, neither Clifton nor Mabelle were seen in the house again. Even the dogs stopped barking in the hallway. The Cramers divorced and sold the house in the '70s. The house was demolished in the 1990s."
