Paul William Walker IV (born September 12, 1973) is an American actor. Webb's elegant taste kept him on Hollywood's best-dressed lists for decades. When Webb's mourning for her continued for what seemed a prolonged period of time, his longtime friend, Noel Coward, is said to have remarked with a bit of exasperation, "It must be tough to be orphaned at seventy-one.". In fact, his character of Mr. Belvedere is said to have been very close to his real life–he had an extreme devotion to his mother, who lived with him until her death at age ninety-one. Belvedere and in other movies flaunted his homosexuality, but his scrupulous private life kept him free of scandal.
Webb's comically foppish mannerisms as Mr. Thornton, who wants to go and stop a recent revival of his movies on TV, in Dreamboat (1952); John Philip Sousa in Stars and Stripes Forever (1952); the doomed husband of Barbara Stanwyck in the 1953 version of Titanic; and John Frederick Shadwell in Three Coins in the Fountain (1954).

After a few silent movies, he was classified as a character actor and stereotyped as a fussy effete snob.
Despite his impressive Broadway credentials, and some appearances on the London stage, he did not fare as well in Hollywood. Webb introduced George and Ira Gershwin's "I've Got a Crush on You" in Treasure Girl (1928); Arthur Schwartz and Howard Dietz's "I Guess I'll Have to Change My Plan" in The Little Show (1929); and Irving Berlin's "Not for All the Rice in China" in As Thousands Cheer (1933). Over the next twenty-five years, the tall and slender performer, who sang in a clear, gentle tenor, appeared in numerous musicals and worked his way from featured dancer to leading man. Taking the stage name Clifton Webb, he was a professional ballroom dancer at age nineteen and appeared in about two dozen operas before debuting on Broadway as Bosco in The Purple Road (1913).
He sang with the Boston Opera Company when he was seventeen. He made his stage debut at age seven. Privately tutored, Webb also studied dance and acting. He didn't care for the theatre.".
