Clifton's marvelous 1948 portrayel of Lynn Belvedere in Sitting Pretty was so well-received by a very wise movie-going public that it became a trilogy of films. Even long after his passing, a 1980s TV series version (Mr. Belvedere) emerged, which ran for several years.
Speaking of the long term effects of his unmistakable aura, the 1997 success of the remake of Titanic also created a revival of interest in Clifton's far superior 1953 version.
Sadly, in Beverly Hills, California on October 13,1966, this virtuoso actor succumbed to a heart attack. His physical form is presently interred at Abbey of the Psalms, Hollywood Memorial Cemetery (aka Hollywood Forever).
However, his indomnable spirit is now online and very much alive and well.
