Paul and Grace Hartman were Broadway theater and musical performers. 1936 was the year that they appeared in the Broadway production of "Red, Hot and Blue" with Jimmy Durante Ethel Mermann and Bob Hope(?!). In 1948 Paul and Grace appeared in "Angel in the Wings" for which the both won Tony Awards as the Best Actor and Best Actress in a Musical respectively. Grace Hartman died in 1955; Paul in 1973. After Grace was diagnosed with cancer they moved to California where Paul was active in television, perhaps most famously as Emmett Clark, the handyman on "The Andy Griffith Show" and "Mayberry RFD."
