From December 1933:
Clark Gable laughed at this, so I suppose I am safe passing it along. I mean this paragraph from a letter from Jean Betty Huber, a Gable fan:
“We took snapshots. One pose especially was good; I was garbed in slacks and had [...]
Clark Gable and Gone with the Wind producer David O. Selznick didn’t exactly always see eye-to-eye (to put it mildly), but nonetheless David let bygones be bygones and gifted Clark with this gorgeous Tiffany’s cigarette case for Christmas in 1939:
