On March 26, 1958, Clark Gable put on a tux (complete with tails, no less) and headed to the RKO Pantages Theater for the 30th Annual Academy Awards. He attended as a presenter with his Teacher’s Pet co-star, Doris Day. This marked one of the handful of times […]
From April 1939:
Clark Gable has about decided to wear a thin upper lip mustache with waxed ends for his role of Rhett Butler. His idea was to wear all black throughout the picture but he was talked out of it because the picture will be done in […]
This 1937 is purely MGM propaganda–“We have two hot male leads! Look at how great they both are!” A bunch of hogwash to think that because they were both leading men they were instantly rivals. Clark and Bob, in fact, grew to be good friends in the years following. Bob and his wife Barbara […]
From April 1940:
1940 is going to be a great year for husband wife teams. Joan Blondell and Dick Powell start things going in April when they co-star in “I Want a Divorce” for Paramount. Then Metro will follow with a picture co-starring Clark Gable and Carole Lombard, […]

Next up–Clark Gable declares he is no ladies man! (Yeah right)
“Most boys learn about women from their mothers,” he says. “They unconsciously form their image of the girl they hope to marry someday by patterning their ideal after the one woman they know best. However, my mother died when I was only […]
From March 1936:
The one woman in Hollywood who really is in Clark Gable’s confidence is—guess—May Robson. They have been like mother and son off the screen for several years. Now they are to be a screen family in “Wife vs. Secretary,” and it seems perfectly natural to […]
Let’s begin our birthday month article-palooza with this one from 1935.
The focus here is that Clark wants a personal life and a professional life and he wants them separate!
No matter how pleasant the impression you get from the finished picture, it represents work, hard work, not only on the part of the […]
