(born August 14, 1909 – December 16, 2010) was an American stage, television and film actress. Clarke appeared in over thirty films throughout her forty-year career, usually in bit parts or in background roles, uncredited. Films in which she made a large impression included The Seven Little Foys, where she played a large supporting role as Bob Hope‘s disapproving sister-in-law, House of Wax, A Double Life, The Gunfighter and The Miracle of Our Lady of Fatima. Angela Clarke, despite entering the film business in her early forties (in 1949’s The Undercover Man), cornered the market for grey-haired, matriarchal motherly-types (such as her role as Mama Caruso in The Great Caruso). Clarke died, aged 101, in Moorpark, California.
