Episode Crew


His brother Bradley was killed in WWII.

Dick suffers from diabetes.

He had a mild stroke on December 8, 2004.

He has three kids- Richard A. Clark, Duane Clark, and Cindy Clark.

Married three times- Barbara Mallery (married in 1951, divorced 1962), Loretta Martin (married 1962, divorced 1971), and Karen Wigton (married 1977).

For many years Dick was referred to as "America's Oldest Teenager."

At the height of his career, Dick maintained a bi-coastal existance with shows he hosted or produced shooting concurrently in both New York and Hollywood. Rather than do mental gymnastics in calculating the time difference, he wore a wristwatch on each wrist. One watch was set for the correct time in Los Angeles, the other for the time in New York.
