From February 1936:
Clark Gable returned to town from another “duck hunt”—and there is a reason for those quotes—and is dashing hither and yon in a very handsome new car. Mrs. Rhea Gable gave a very handsome dinner party on a recent evening, and one of the guests […]
From September 1934:
There is no accounting for strange accidents. Take what happened to Clark Gable for example. Clark has hunted bears and lions in the most dangerous mountain-lands. He has enacted scores of hazardous stunts for movie cameras. Throughout these experiences, he has never been scathed.
From June 1954:
Clark Gable and Virginia Grey have resumed their long, long romance. If there is to be a fifth Mrs. Clark Gable this year, the Grey lass seems to be leading the field.
There was quite a lot of excitement around when Clark Gable […]
From November 1949:
Paulette [Goddard], of course, has found her true love at last, or so she claims, in Clark Gable and this romance, which started with a gag blind date, has flourished so that Paulette didn’t even want to leave for Mexico for a picture commitment. However, […]

Grace Kelly is trying to forget Clark Gable by dating most of Hollywood’s eligible males, but the torch she carries for “The King” can be seen from Catalina on a clear night.
From May 1954:
Clark Gable has given Flickerville something to talk about since his departure from the MGM lot. He’s reported as having snubbed old, old pals and a couple of West Coast scribes who really helped put him up there with The Big Ones. “The King” […]
From May 1955:
We can be wrong, of course, but we also doubt that Clark Gable and Kay Williams Speckels will ever say “I do” to each other.
Same magazine, September 1955:
Clark Gable’s elopement with blonde and beautiful Kay […]
From March 1957:
Cruel review for Clark Gable’s “A King and Four Queens” in a London paper. It ended with, “Why don’t you act your own age, partner? Be someone’s young graddad for a change.” Ouch, ouch and again ouch.
