About the Author

CLIFFORD CHARLES ARQUETTE (December 27, 1905 - September 23, 1974) was an American actor and comedian, whose career spanned radio, movies, the theater, and finally television. At one time he had 13 daily radio shows emanating from studios all over Chicago. The problem of a tight schedule was overcome by setting up an elaborate transportation schedule which included a motor boat trip on the river. He retired from show business in 1956, but was tempted by Jack Paar to make several guest appearances on NBC’s Jack Paar Show, which brought him more fame and fortune than anything else in his career. Cliff said, with a chuckle, that he developed the “Letters From Mamma” routine because “…I’m lazy and I don’t like to memorize things. So I write myself letters to read. Easier that way.” He died in Burbank, California in 1974, aged 68.
