From February 1936:

At a party we saw Mrs. Clark Gable chatting with the ex-wife of a famous star.

“My husband didn’t play fair about alimony,” said the ex-wife. “I gave him the most dignified divorce Hollywood ever saw. I chaperoned him and his girl friend for months to avoid scandal. Now she has him when he’s on top. I worked for him during the building years.”

Mrs. Gable nodded quietly. “I know a little about building myself.”
