Summary
Carmen Capalbo, a Broadway theater director and a friend and associate of Bobby Clark, a famous actor/comedian, portrays him as an unassuming reserved person completely void of vanity, a loner who was shy and dull in life but charged with extraordinary energy on stage, a difficult but a highly moral man. Capalbo's observation of the difference between old time actors and his contemporary ones focuses on the utmost respect and devotion to the theater by the former and their keen sense of value of every item that was related to or used in performances (costumes, shoes, props) and their attention to every detail. A number of trunks with such collections were donated by Clark to NYPL. Capalbo also shares his memories of Mike Todd, a theater and film producer, and Gypsy Rose Lee, a burlesque entertainer.
