His most famous musical composition is the song "After The Ball", written in 1892. The song was a flop at first, but became a huge hit when it was interpolated into the 1891 play, "A Trip To Chinatown", which was still running at the time. It has remained popular to this day as an example of the kind of popular music played in the 1890s. It was interpolated by Jerome Kern and Oscar Hammerstein II into their classic 1927 musical, "Show Boat", to be sung at a climactic, poignant part in the story, and is always used in stage productions of the show. It was also used in the 1936 and 1951 film versions, but not in the 1929 part-talkie version.

In 1892, his formidable mother, Mabelle (1869-1960), moved to New York with her beloved "little Webb," as she called him for the remainder of her life. She dismissed questions about his father, Jacob Grant Hollenbeck, a railroad ticket clerk, by saying, "We never speak of him. He didn't care for the theater." Webb and Maybelle lived together until her death at age 91. When Clifton's obsessive grieving for his mother continued on for well over a year, close friend Noel Coward, keeping their lengthy friendship in mind, is said to have remarked with a bit of exasperation, "It must be difficult to be orphaned at seventy." Webb never recovered from his mother's death. He made one film, then spent the remainder of his life in ill health and seclusion.
