Actor. Soft-spoken, stage and film character actor, Clinton Sundberg was a second generation American of Swedish heritage. A one-time teacher who turned to acting, he appeared in a number of Broadway plays before becoming an MGM contract player beginning in the late 1940s. His rather meek countenance and light, raspy tenor tones befitted a comfortable niche playing courteous servile types in mostly sentimental tales. As various desk clerks, waiters and menservants (and maybe a couple of out-of-character villains), he seemed to back up a large roster of MGM's biggest stars in musicals. He may be best remembered as Judy Garland's good-natured bartender in "Easter Parade" (1948).

Cause of death: Heart failure
