Earlier in the week we looked at the essay Clark Gable wrote about his co-star, Loretta Young, as publicity for Key to the City.
An innocent idea, certainly, except of course when said co-stars had a secret child fifteen years earlier.
So let’s see what Loretta had [...]
Sometimes work duties can be awkward. Like, say, when you are required to pen an essay detailing why your co-star is so great, and you and said co-star had a secret baby out of wedlock fifteen years earlier. Yeah. That’s awkward.
During the press circuit of To [...]
Sometimes, when I find a new article for the site, I sit down and read it, jot down some notes, and then put it in the pile to type. Other times (often when I’m backlogged!), I don’t read the article until I am actually typing it up. This article is one of those and [...]
This article is an interesting piece, since in the majority of interviews with Clark after the abrupt end of his marriage with Sylvia have him stating he will never marry again ever, that perhaps him and marriage weren’t compatible.
There are some interesting quotes from Clark littered throughout:
“That was unfortunate. The faults weren’t [...]
This article is a little bit of fun. I’ve read here and there over the years about Carole Lombard’s “fragile health” after she married Clark Gable. I know she had poison ivy at one point, and appendicitis, but I’ve always suspected that this whole “fragile health” scenario was a bit of a [...]
This 1936 article isn’t earth-shattering by any means, but does contain a few interesting little tidbits:
Any time you can get Clark to taking about himself, you can depend on it that he’s kidding himself thoroughly, relentlessly, fiercely,
You know that typical Clark Gable expression that’s always on his face? A sort of [...]
Let’s kick off the weekend of Clark Gable and Carole Lombard’s 75th wedding anniversary with a new article, shall we?
There were a LOT of articles written about Clark and Carole from the second they started flirting in 1936 through 1942 and even beyond. But my favorites, by far, are the [...]
Carole Lombard Gable died 72 years ago today, in a horrific plane crash. She was 33 years old. It’s always difficult to realize that she died such a long time ago, as she always comes across as so modern.
This memorial article from Hollywood magazine sums her up quite nicely. Rather [...]
It’s a new year! And back in 1933, new star Clark Gable was pretty much forced by this female reporter to announce his resolutions to the world. And he said to read more books, be more organized, drink less coffee and get to the gym every once in a while…oh wait, those aren’t his…
This short little article from 1931 is extremely tabloid-y but that is what makes it interesting! Published in the fall of 1931 when Clark was the newest heart throb, articles like this were the result of editors screaming at their writing staff, “I need pieces on Clark Gable NOW!” So, they grasp at [...]
