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.
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.
