clark gable kay spreckels

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 Spreckels came as no surprise to me. Clark likes to laugh, and Kay is full of fun. This is the marriage Clark needed to forget his last mistake with Lady Sylvia. It was only shortly before they took the plunge in the wedding pool that the King was asked when it would happen. He put off with: “Kay and I might do it just to kill your favorite question.” But I knew then they’d do it because they were—and are—in love.
