Mrs. Lucette Clark, born Angele Gaignat in Switzerland, and the widow of Bobby Clark, popular actor/comedian, is interviewed by Lipton and another unidentified person. Some of the conversation is drowned out by the traffic noise in the background. Married to the actor since 1923 until his death, Mrs. Clark speaks about her husband's tastes, hobbies, habits, traits of character, relationships with his family, friends, associates and herself. She recounts anecdotes from his early tours and professional life, and describes the partership and relationship of Clark & McCullough team stressing the importance of including extended information about Paul McCullough in Clark's biography. The 2nd part of the recording is mostly the account of her life and paranormal experiences that reinforced her fervent faith in spirituality.
