FROM THIS EPISODE

Buttoned-up restaurateur Clifford Clinton made himself a giant of Los Angeles history by fighting to rid the city of corruption and vice, while giving away free meals to the poor in his restaurant, Clifton's Cafeteria. But after he met Terri Richmond, the couple unexpectedly became sexual trailblazers in the early 1960s. From a "Happy ending" massage parlor, to a love nest apartment, and inventing "marital aids": Terri and Clifford just went where their love and lust took them.

Terri and Clifford was produced by Bob Carlson, featuring the words of Ray Richmond, Romi Gordon, and Terri Richmond. Music help from Eric J. Lawrence. Special thanks to Sarah Spitz.
