Gable_by_Uwe_Reber

Clark Gable was an extremely popular film star for 30 years. His fans saw him as rugged and masculine; he invented "cool." Every woman wanted Gable and every man wanted to be Gable. He was perfect for Depression era audiences with his "I'm just a regular kinda guy" appeal. Many people only remember him as Rhett Butler saying, "Frankly, my dear, I don't give a damn!," but if you've missed his other 65 films, you've missed a treat.

Gable & Harlow

gableline

I particularly enjoy him opposite crackling Jean Harlow in The Secret Six, Red Dust, Hold Your Man, China Seas, Wife vs. Secretary, and Saratoga, Harlow's last film. The "Platinum Blonde" and the "King of Hollywood" had enormous sex appeal. Their on screen chemistry sizzles, especially in Red Dust and Hold Your Man, where sparks practically fly from the screen with every look and every touch.
I have many Gable images in my mind, but the following are the ones that stand out.
  • Gable as Harry Patterson in Adventure willing his infant son to live.
  • Gable as Flint Mitchell in Across the Wide Missouri holding his deceased wife.
  • Gable as Peter Warne in It Happened One Night singing, "Who's Afraid of the Big Bad Wolf?".
  • Gable as Eddie Hall in Hold Your Man pleading with the minister to marry Ruby and him.
  • Gable in dark glasses, obviously in pain, after losing wife Carole Lombard in a plane crash.

I hope you enjoy your stay and come away with an appreciation for the man known as "The King of Hollywood."
