Since Clark and Carole were married 74 years ago this month, here’s one from November 1936:
London, of all places, has the cutest new betting game. They’re betting, over there, on whether or not certain film couples will marry! ! !

From November 1935:
Reports were published that Miss Harlow declared a dislike for Gable, and that she openly stated she would never appear in another picture with him. Other printed items vouched that Clark replied: “My pet name for Miss Harlow cannot be printed.”
