Edward E. Clive (28 August 1879 - 6 June 1940) was a Welsh actor in the early 20th century. Born in Monmouthshire, Clive studied for a medical career before switching his focus to acting at age 22. Touring the provinces for a decade, Clive became an expert at virtually every sort of regional dialect in the British Isles. He moved to the U.S. in 1912, where after working in the Orpheum vaudeville circuit he set up his own stock company in Boston. By the 1920s, his company was operating in Hollywood; among his repertory players were such up-and-comers as Rosalind Russell.
