The partner of Bobby Clark, Paul McCullough became a star in vaudeville, on Broadway, and in short films as one half of "Clark & McCullough." They started out as co-equal partners in comedy, but by the time they worked on their best short films at RKO in the '30s, McCullough was far less creatively engaged than Clark (who worked out most of the routines ahead of time) and had receded to being the raccoon-coated straight man to the more live-wire Clark. He later collapsed from exhaustion following a successful Broadway run in early 1936. McCullough committed suicide by slashing his own throat while being driven home from the sanitarium by Clark who went on to 22 years of success on the Broadway stage. ~ Bruce Eder, Rovi
