Description
The interview is conducted on the phone and therefore the sound is not always clear. Ed Wynn's remarks and comments are muffled. For the most part, Wynn, a comedian and actor, recommends various show business people who might provide some information about Bobby Clark whom Wynn characterizes as an amiable person but a loner who didn't socialize (his speculation is that it was due to frugality) and consequently left behind very little personal material about his life.
