“No other star I have ever known has as much courtesy and consideration and real gratitude to the public for its friendship and support. He was always a little shy about it, a little inclined to wonder if it could all be for him, but they were always dear to his heart. He likes people.
“Don’t misunderstand me; Clark Gable was never any angel. He had his love affairs, and some of them were hectic enough, before his happy marriage to Carole Lombard. He was a reasonably good drinking man, but he drank as the old saying goes, ‘Like a gentleman.’ He got into fights occasionally and sometimes he put his ears back like a mule and nobody on earth could move him an inch.
“But you may believe me when I say that I think more of us went to him, in trouble, for his opinion and his advice, than any other man in Hollywood. Spencer Tracy, Ty Power, the producers and directors on the lot—the list would be endless.” ~Adela Rogers St. Johns, 1944
