First Thoughts

Clark Gable

William Clark Gable (February 1, 1901 - November 16, 1960), known as Clark Gable, was an American film actor most famous for his role as Rhett Butler in the 1939 Civil War epic film Gone with the Wind, in which he starred with Vivien Leigh.

Me explaining Carlos at work: "No, he doesn't have a ridiculous Chris Evans body. Carlos is more classic like Cary Grant or Clark Gable. He is tall, handsome face, great hair, nice legs, big chest, big shoulders, and sexy muscles. He doesn't look like he can pick up Thor's hammer. He looks like he can throw a punch and do pull ups but also knows how to dress, pick out wine and what books to read. He is perfect."
Black and white movies ❤️ watching Red Dust. Staring Clark Gable and Mary Astor.
I think Leland Yee's problems were a) he's a corrupt hack, and b) he saw Clark Gable's Soldier of Fortune too many times.
Watching "Wife vs. Secretary" (1936) with Clark Gable, Jean Harlow and Myrna Loy on TCM. Fantastic!

He is the next Frederic March, Clark Gable, or Charlie Chaplin. He is James Murray, also a drunk derelict who can’t hold a job.
I'll be introducing the Jean Harlow/Clark Gable film "Red Dust" (1932) tonight at Starts at 7 p.m. and is only $2!
Another day, more stupidity re: GWTW. Cambridge university has changed the "theme" of their May Day ball from GWTW to something else due to racism allegations. I love the fact that the young buck who wrote the first article on the issue actually wrote the phrase "well duh" in her article, a slanderous reference alluding mental retardation. Nice job. The huffington post UK has gone so far as to include the well known youtube video of Hattie McDaniel and then criticize the video for "editing out hattie having to walk from the back of the room." Has the entire world gone completely and totally ignorant? It's a miracle that video exists! Besides Vivien Leigh, it is the ONLY video with audio that I've seen from the 1940 awards. I would sure like to see David O. Selznick receiving the Thalberg award or the best picture oscar. Every video of the Academy Awards is edited and people continue to act like Vivien Leigh, Clark Gable, and Olivia de Havilland are personally responsible for Hattie sitting at the back of ...
In 1935, MGM bought Tracy's contact from 20th Century-Fox, as Louis B. Mayer respected his talent and thought he would be a good second lead, particularly in support of the studio's male star, Clark Gable. After four years of playing second-fiddle to Gable, Tracy came into his own as a star in MGM vehicles such as Captains Courageous (1937) and Boys Town (1938), for both of which he won back-to-back Best Actor Oscars. Though he remained friends with Gable, the two never co-starred together after 1940.
Thank you TCM for introducing me to William Powell. A Clark Gable face with the acerbic wit of Groucho Marx

Recently, women I know have been talking about flying - not in an airplane. I have had many friends who practice the form of meditation known as Transcendental or TM, and in the opposite flow from George Harrison, at least one gravitated toward it from ISKCON, the equally popular Krishna movement. When I was studying chiropractic, a number of fellow students were proponents of the TM system of levitation they call flying. I held my tongue about it all, not so much because I am an experienced aircraft mechanic and thus rightfully cautious about any aircraft to which I have not attached a piece of my well- chewed chewing gum before take-off, like Spencer Tracy did to Clark Gable's plane, but because I have levitated once in meditation, and although I rose not more than a few inches nor more than a minute before I settled with a plop onto my cushion, and because I was afraid of going any higher. What would happen when my crown hit the ceiling? And what would happen if I tried it outdoors? Actually, of course ...
any one who saw Monuments Men think George Clooney looked like Clark Gable?

Joel McCrea and Joseph Cotten. Those are the big 3, but then there is always Van Heflin, Robert Taylor,Clark Gable, etc lol
I really need to watch Charles Laughton in “Mutiny on the Bounty” again. He apparently despised Clark Gable.

Looking at all the stars last night that were brought back from retirement or are less prominent than in the past, the two that impressed me most were Angela Landsbury and Sidney Poitier. I am surprised though that they honoured Wizard of Oz and said nothing about Gone with the Wind. Juxtaposing it with 12 Years A Slave would have been interesting--We've come a long way, also Hattie McDaniel was the first Afro-American to win an oscar for performance, in that movie. Their retrospective of heros was talked about so much and there was nothing about Charlie Chaplin, Clark Gable, Rudloph Valentino. It was very limited in its perspective. It seemed to be more about the glamour than anything else. Also there was nothing about those performers that were real heros.
I prefer this version of the selfie - more Jared Leto, and Brad looks like Clark Gable.
Finally figured it out. Brad Pitt looks like Clark Gable now.
Brad Pitt is starting to look like Clark Gable.
Has anyone extensively studied "Mutiny on the Bounty"? Just watched the 1935 production with Clark Gable. A little different ending than the 1962 version with Marlon Brando. Both films have seem to present inconsistencies with the historical accounts, but I enjoyed viewing each of them.
Anyone think Brad Pitt looks like 1 of 2 people tonight, Clark Gable w/o a mustache or Frank Sutton who played SGT Carter from Gomer Pyle?
Ok.. When is Brad Pitt gonna make the Clark Gable bio movie?
Brad Pitt is starting to look like a chunky Clark Gable. (It suits him.)
Running family argument. I contend that Brad Pitt looks like Clark Gable all of a sudden
Vivien Leigh was paid between $25,000 and $30,000 for her role of Scarlett. Clark Gable was paid $120,000 for his role as Rhett Butler.
This was Clark Gable's last film, completed after Carole Lombard's tragic death, and before he enlisted in the US Army Air Corps.. This was the second of four films Lana Turner co-starred with Gable..
Interesting Oscars facts : 1. Winners can't sell their prizes to anyone except back to the Academy, at a mere $1. But trophies before 1950 can be auctioned. e.g. in 1996, Steven Spielberg bought Clark Gable's 1934 Best Oscar for It Happened One Night for $550K and then returned it to Academy who had tried to block the sale claiming first right. 2. 50 Oscar statues are made for each ceremony with 'britannium' (93% tin, 5% antimony and 2% copper and then gold plated) with a unique serial number engraved. But during the WWII for 3 years, Oscar statuettes were made of painted plaster due to shortage of metal which was later exchanged with brittanium ones. There was only a single wooden statuette ever presented and this was the Honorary Oscar given to the ventriloquist Edgar Bergen and his dummy Charlie McCarthy in 1938. 3. The biggest loser(s) areThe Turning Point and The Color Purple - both received 11 nominations each in 1978 and 1986, but failed to win even one award. In contrast The Lord of the Rings: The ...

ANSWERS TO YESTERDAY'S TRIVIA Margaret Mitchell's heroine was originally named PANSY (changed to Scarlett). When Gary Cooper turned down the role for Rhett Butler, he was passionately against it.

HOLLYWOOD ‘ROYALTY’ IN CHILLIWACK – Chilliwack in the 20th century was not known as a place where one might see Hollywood movie stars. However, before air travel became the preferred way to get around, the train was the main mode of transportation and over the years more than a few celebrities would pass through Chilliwack on the main CN line and, in some cases, even get off for a brief walkabout. In fact, two of Hollywood’s top stars paid quick visits to Chilliwack many years ago. On Canada Day, July 1, 1933 Clark Gable (1901-1960) stopped in Chilliwack for a short time. This was approximately six years before his career really took off with release of “Gone With The Wind”. Little is known about why Gable was in or passing through Chilliwack, but the event was noted in the Chilliwack Progress. Twenty years later, on July 11, 1953 Marilyn Monroe (1926-1962) left Vancouver on a CN train heading east. She was destined for Alberta where she was to start filming her latest movie “River of No ...
He was clearly the surprise choice for Best Actor in 1939, but it's a choice that's stood the test of time: Robert Donat in the original "Goodbye, Mr. Chips." Plus, when you consider that the other nominees were Clark Gable ("GWTW," natch!), Jimmy Stewart ("Mr. Smith Goes to Washington"), Laurence Olivier ("Wuthering Heights"), and Mickey Rooney ("Babes in Arms"), it must have been a very tough call in what many feel was the single best year for American films.
I still don't know what scandal is...I only watch the black & white classics i.e. Betty Davis, Clark Gable, Jimmy Stewart - I know, I'm old fashioned.that's ok too.
Starting recommendation would be Clark Gable and Such Great Heights (usual crowd favourites) C:
To start off,  I have a wide range of TV shows / Movies that I like, from many different era's as well ! As a teenager, I grew up in the 1980's, so of course...

But I also like a LOT of much older stuff, I watch a lot of movies on Turner Classic Movies channel, and Silver Screen Classics. The movies on these channels range from Westerns, Victorian movies, Love Stories, Murder Mysteries, Comedies, Dramas, Abbott and Costello, with stars like John Wayne, Marilyn Munroe, James Stewart;In the movie : " Harvey ",  Katherine Hepburn, Doris Day, Barbara Stanwyck, Jack Lemmon, Walter Mathau, Bob Hope, Tony Curtis, Dorothy Lamour, Lana Turner, Elizabeth Taylor, Clark Gable, Audrey Hepburn, Joan Crawford... just to name a lot, lol !

Elbert "Babe" Stapp (February 26, 1904 San Antonio, Texas - September 17, 1980 Indianapolis, Indiana) He was fourth of four children (the"Babe"), but his family moved to southern California in the mid-1905. His first race was in 1923 at the half-mile “out-law" track in San Luis Obispo (Calif). He was aboard the George Sherman Special. He achieved notable success driving Harry Hooker’s bobtailed Fronty number 99 using the Leo Goossen-designed, Harry A. Miller DOHC Model T Ford Conversion head. At the time(1924-25), Babe was racing at the new Ascot (publicized by Bill Pickens) and then with the Western Racing Association (WRA) and was competing with famous drivers.It shouldbe noted that Babe was followed in the Col. Hooker 99 carby such friends/rivals as Mel Kenealy (1926 and 1930), Bill Spence(1927) and Francis Quinn (1929). In 1926, Babe drove the number 3 machine, which was financed by his friend Art Pillsbury, on theWRA circuit. Also around this time Babe was a member of the “13 Black Cats,” wh ...

I just loved Hattie McDaniel! I try to watch all of her movies (TCM airs one occasionally), and she definitely deserved all of the accolades she received during her career. I learned that Clark Gable actually was the one who recommended her to producer David O. Selznick for the role of Scarlett O'Hara's nursemaid Mammy in "Gone with the Wind" (1939); and that Selznick was so impressed with her that he had the screenplay rewritten to accommodate her. Though segregation precluded Hattie McDaniel from attending the film's Atlanta premiere, vindication came with an Oscar win for Best Actress in a Supporting Role. A wonderful actress, she was the first black person to win an Oscar.
Clark Gable was such a charming man.
you're welcome!! love Leslie Howard! Let me know if u have done Clark Gable! He's another favorite!
Trying to decide between a Clark Gable movie and a Elizabeth Taylor movie is probably the hardest decision I've made in a long time
My son thought that was Clark Gable.He called him Gone With The Wind Man.Seeing Hattie isn't help to show his error.

Here's a challenging trivia question: what 98-year-old actor has appeared in movies with all of the following: Clark Gable, Clint Eastwood, Steve McQueen, Marilyn Monroe, Yul Brynner, Peter O'Toole, Al Pacino, Diane Keaton, Charles Bronson, Kate Winslet, Cameron Diaz, Jude Law, Jack Black, Audrey Hepburn, James Stewart, John Wayne, Gregory Peck, and Debbie Reynolds. Hint: his most famous role was in an early movie with Clint Eastwood.
Very flattering and I thank you once again, my dear.

Monday Mystery: Although I opened for business at the beginning of the Great Depression, I managed to do well and was in constant use from 1929 to 1963. The Dorsey Brothers, Lawrence Welk and Guy Lombardo were among the bands that performed within my halls. Guests included Judy Garland, Clark Gable, Roy Rogers, Helen Keller, LBJ and General Pershing. For a time during WWII, I was home to many military dependents from Fort Wolters. I was the host facility for the Texas Republican Party Conventions in 1952 and 1955, and for the Texas Democratic Party in 1954. I was closed for two years until a group of investors re-opened my doors in 1965. My last guest checked out in 1972 but don’t write me off yet - I’ve been in the news recently! What am I?

Enchanted Snake was spring in the old west. The cowboys rode the still snow choked trails looking for cattle that survived the winter. As one cowboy's horse went around the narrow trail, it came upon a rattlesnake warming itself in the spring sunshine. The horse reared and the cowboy drew his six- gun to shoot the snake. "Hold on there, partner," said the snake, "don't shoot- I'm an enchanted rattlesnake, and if you don't shoot me, I'll give you any three wishes you want." The cowboy decided to take a chance. He knew he was safely out of the snake's striking range. He said, "OK, first, I'd like to have a face like Clark Gable, then, I'd like a build like Arnold Schwarzenegger, and finally, I'd like sexual equipment like this here horse I'm riding." The rattlesnake said, "All right, when you get back to the bunk house you'll have all three wishes." The cowboy turned his horse around and galloped at full speed all the way to the bunk house. He dismounted on the run and went straight inside to the mirror. St ...

March is almost here and so are the mustaches! Men (and women, if you are so inclined) you are cordially invited to participate in the annual March Mustache Madness event. To be involved all you need to do is grow an awesome mustache, the weirder/grosser/uglier, the better. There is no prize, other than knowing that having a mustache makes you a part of something greater than yourself. Mark Twain, Clark Gable, Rollie Fingers, Genghis Kahn, Tom Selleck, and Yosemite Sam all rocked gorgeous lip-manes, and so can you! As famous mustachere Teddy Roosevelt once stated: "Do what you can, with what you have, where you are." Clearly, he was speaking about growing a killer mouth-brow! Join with me for victory! Long live the mustache! Yours, Clint Hill Mustache aficionado
Nothing beats a good black and white! Spencer Tracy, Clark Gable and Myrna Loy... Wonderful!

Watching 1938 Test Pilot! Love all three of them... Myrna Loy, Clark Gable and Spencer Tracy!
Okay, let's see if anyone can answer this seasonal trivia question, about a specific accomplishment: Clark Gable, Shirley MacLaine, Diane Keaton, Dustin Hoffman, Meryl Streep, Morgan Freeman, and Colin Firth are among the select group of stars to have done it three times. Sir Laurence Olivier, Marlon Brando, Robert Redford, Robert De Niro, Gene Hackman, Ben Affleck, Danny de Vito, and Leonardo DiCaprio are some of the larger group to have pulled it off twice. Audrey Hepburn, Sidney Poitier, Natalie Wood, Woody Allen, Sly Stallone, Donald Sutherland, Paul Newman, Tom Hanks, Jodie Foster, and Elijah Wood are among the many who have managed it a single time in their careers (to this point, at least). Katherine Hepburn, Jane Fonda, Sissy Spacek, Denzel Washington, and Daniel Day-Lewis have NEVER done it. Got it? Or need more hints? Here're a few more anecdotal facts: Gable, Streep, Sir John Gielgud, Russell Crowe and John Goodman are among the very small handful of people to accomplish this twice in a row. Ma ...
Boom Town, 1940 The poster on the left is what the original poster looked like and the poster on the right is the reprint. Movie plot ~ "Big John" McMasters (Clark Gable) and "Square John" Sand (Spencer Tracy) are two down-on-their-luck oil wildcatters who join forces. Without enough money, they steal drilling equipment from a skeptical Luther Aldrich (Frank Morgan). Their well proves a bust and they have to hastily depart when Aldrich shows up with the sheriff to take back his property. The two oilmen team up and make enough money to partially pay Aldrich. To get him to back them for a second try, they cut him in for a percentage of the well. This time, they strike it rich. When Elizabeth 'Betsy' Bartlett (Claudette Colbert) shows up, McMasters sweeps her off her feet (without knowing that Sand considers her his girl) and marries her. Sand accepts the situation, wanting Betsy to be happy. However, on their first anniversary, she catches her husband dancing with a barroom floozy. As a result, Sand quarrel ...
Spencer Tracy & Clark Gable Gable ~ Boom Town, 1940 This was the last of three films (after San Francisco (1936) and Test Pilot (1938)) that Clark Gable and Spencer Tracy did together. After this film, Tracy insisted on a clause in his MGM contract that he would receive equal billing with Gable in all future films. While the two remained lifelong friends, they were never again paired together in a movie because MGM wasn't sure how to handle the equal billing.

What a day this has been in Granada! I visited Sacromonte, where Ava and Rene ended up in 1955/56 while touring Spain on Ava's new Mercedes coupe. They spent three days there with Andalusian Gypsies who lived in caves, dancing Flamenco and drinking homemade wine. Tonight beginning at 8 I got to walk the red carpet through the center of town with Carmen Vargas and Harper Voll (grandson of Gregory Peck), event organizer Emilio Egea, the mayor, and lots of TV and newspaper press. There was a gorgeous Ava impersonator (also one for Clark Gable and others reenacting Mogambo). Sean Ferrer (son of Audrey Hepburn and Mel Ferrer) and his beautiful wife joined us a little later as we toured the exhibit where there was a standing-room-only crowd. Then we walked across town to the Mae West Club for a cocktail party. The band played big band music, and they were awesome! That was another standing-room-only and quite lively crowd. Sorry I left my camera cord at the exhibition space. I'll post a whole album of pictures ...
It Happened One Night w/Clark Gable and Claudette Colbert is on. So good.
Chocolate chip cookies, Clark Gable, and Claudette Colbert=great way to end a day!
"It Happened One Night" now on TCM with Clark Gable and Claudette Colbert from 1934 - still beautiful…
OK I'm watching an old movie I've never seen before. It's a remake of It Happened One Night called You can't run away from it. Jack Lemmon is no Clark Gable and June Allyson is no Claudette Colbert but it's cute with more modern acting. So why did they try to make it a partial musical? Best remake ever was An Affair to Remember. It was almost word for word following the original, Love Affair, but it was better due to the actors. Cary Grant and Deborah Kerr, what's not to like.
1934, Clark Gable and Claudette Colbert.good movie. 3rd time for me.
It Happened One Night (1934). Clark Gable, Claudette Colbert. The movie that ignited my passion for old movies.
Everything is looking so very ultra romantic until: Claudette Colbert: "What are you doing?" Clark Gable: "Just wondering." (staring off into the horizon) Claudette Colbert: "What are you wondering?" Clark Gable: "I was just wondering what makes DAMES LIKE YOU so DIZZY!" :)
If your interested, on of the greatest comedies ever is on. "It Happened One Night" is on TCM. It's been on for about 35 mins, just caught it. Great movie with Claudette Colbert and Clark Gable. Classic!
It Happened One Night with Clark Gable and Claudette Colbert. An amazing movie! Love TMC.
Interesting to note that neither Claudette Colbert nor Clark Gable wanted to make this ...
Well, I was going to sleep, but Clark Gable and Claudette Colbert are stuck in a cabin together in the middle of a downpour. Ahhh, the days of propriety! He gives her his pj top for a nighties and strings a drape between the two beds. I love it.

Watching 1934 movie 'It Happened One Night' with Clark Gable and Claudette Colbert. It swept the top five Oscars that year. Best Picture, Best Director (Frank Capra), Best Actor, Best Actress and Best Screenplay. The first movie to do so.

Michael Kanin won the Academy Award for Best Original Screenplay alongside Ring Lardner Jr. for “Woman of the Year” in 1942. The film marked the first pairing of Katherine Hepburn and Spencer Tracy. He received another Oscar nomination in 1958 for the screenplay "Teacher's Pet" which starred Clark Gable and Doris Day. Kanin co-wrote the film with is wife Fay Kanin. She was an accomplished writer and was the second woman in history to become President of the Motion Picture Academy of Arts and Sciences. The Kanins are interred in the New Beth Olam Mausoleum at Hollywood Forever.
The oldest Movie I love is IT HAPPENED ONE NIGHT, a 1934 romantic comedy with Clark Gable and Claudette Colbert. Most movies prior to that have WAY TOO MUCH music in the background, and not good sound quality. They were new at talking pictures, and I can respect that. But I can't fully enjoy any movie unless the sound quality is there. Today I watched THE DIVORCEE from 1930, and it was a struggle, but I wanted to see it. If nothing else, I can appreciate good acting and period costumes. I have such a love of old movies: it's a fantastic way to take a journey back through time and visit a different era. And this fits right in with my love of history. Many of the 1940's movies I've seen, my Mom watched at the theater when they came out. When she went as a child, it cost 15 cents for a ticket. For my Grandma Mary to go see a silent movie in her day, it was 5 cents. The first movie I remember was GONE WITH THE WIND at one of the downtown Evansville Theaters when I was 6. ( We had two theaters: the V ...

I adore this happy, natural shot of Clark Gable and Carole Lombard, 1940. Heartbreaking that it would be cut short.
I was looking at the TCM t.v. schedule for the next number of days and friends if you can tune in and watch some of the greatest classic movies .Although most of them are black and white most of them are rated G which means the whole family can watch them .For example TheAwful Truth is one of the funniest movies.Mogambo with Clark Gable and Grace Kelly,Topper a movie where Cary Grant plays a ghost ,Going My Way about a priest [ Bing Crosby ]who goes to help out a parish in need of help.Tat tell a story that touches then we have Spencer Tracy portraying a priest who founded the famous Boystown.There are some that touches the heart .Some come on late but are worth staying up to watch bcoz they are so funny or have a meaning.And all these movies are commercial free.To tell you the truth I am hooked.I love classic movies.Then theres Irene Dunne who is so funny.Shes in a movie titled Magnificent Obsession and The Awful Truth.On Sunday one of millions of our favorites The Adventures Of Robin Hood with Errol a . ...

We ran across a list of movie quotes about death: Aaron Eckhart in Love Happens: “Funerals are important rituals. They don’t just recognize that a life has ended; they recognize that a life was lived.” Morgan Freeman in The Bucket List: “You know, the ancient Egyptians had a beautiful belief about death. When their souls got to the entrance to heaven, the guards asked two questions. Their answers determined whether they were able to enter or not. ‘Have you found joy in your life?’ 'Has your life brought joy to others?’” Robin Williams as Patch Adams said: “Death – to blink for an exceptionally long period of time.” Jim Carrey in Simon Birch: “When someone you love dies, you don't lose them all at once. You lose them in pieces over time, like how the mail stops coming.” Clark Gable in The Misfits: “Honey, we all got to go sometime, reason or no reason. Dying’s as natural as living. The man who's too afraid to die is too afraid to live.” Jeff Goldblum in The Big Chill: ...
Cameron Mitchell, US Army Air Force Mitchell served as a bombardier with the United States Army Air Forces during World War II. His film career began with minor roles in films dating back to 1945, including They Were Expendable. He co-starred with Wallace Beery in The Mighty McGurk, with Doris Day and James Cagney in Love Me or Leave Me, with Lana Turner and Spencer Tracy in Cass Timberlane, with Clark Gable and Jane Russell in The Tall Men, with Marlon Brando, Merle Oberon, Jean Simmons in Désirée, and with Joanne Woodward and Sheree North in No Down Payment. Some of his best known films were the 1951 adaptation of Death of a Salesman, the 1952 version of Les Miserables, the 1953 comedy How to Marry a Millionaire, and 1956's film version of the stage musical Carousel. He voiced Jesus of Nazareth in The Robe. It was on TV where Mitchell had the greatest effect during the latter part of his career, and he is best remembered for starring as Uncle Buck in the 1960s NBC western series, The High Chaparr ...

I like tip : "Vivien Leigh and Clark Gable on the set of Gone with the Wind (1939)
Abs Fact Showing off a six-pack on film is an everyday occurrence now, but the first Hollywood ab shot caused a sensation. When Clark Gable took off his button-down and bared his belly in the 1934 film "It Happened One Night", it's said that undershirt sales plummeted. You can see this scene that caused such a stir on the big screen this Thursday, February 20.
you should watch "gone with the wind" for many reasons and Clark Gable as Rhett Butler is one of them
I'm "auditioning" movies this week for a class I'm doing next month called "GABLE'S GIRLS." We will screen 8 Clark Gable films showing a gamut of his leading ladies and it's so hard to pick just 8. This morning I looked at "DANCING LADY" (1933), which I have not seen in years. MGM was clearly trying to outdo Busby Berkeley and the Warner Bros. backstage musicals of '33. They did not succeed; the choreography lacks the tightness and precision of Berkeley's kaleidoscopic routines and there's none of that gritty Warner Bros. bite in the script. But it's got all the other ingredients down pat---the Art Deco sets, the class conflict, the over-worked chorines, etc. Joan Crawford is a rather heavy-footed dancer with lots of arms, big steps, and she watches her feet a lot. But the picture is charming and includes everyone from Fred Astaire (his first movie) to the 3 Stooges. When Gable pats Crawford on the butt she says "Thank you!" It's definitely a contender for my class.
I Might be wrong here, but im sure that Clark Gable & Carole Lombard dressed the same once for a Premiere
I think this summer in honor of the King I am going to map out a selection of places that he liked, lived in and visited in Hollywood, Beverly Hills and Encino. Of course it will end with paying respects at Forest Lawn in Glendale. Yeap, I think it's time. If you have suggestions or ideas feel free to share. I wish they had a Clark Gable tour!

Lady for a Day (1933) - Frank Capra at his best. Must see. Dave the Dude - The Dude. The man with the answers. Born with the right instinct. Happy McGuire - Dave's partner. The brain. The man who turns plans to profit. Apple Annie - The poor apple seller who loves her daughter. Judge Blake - Beneath the impeccable speech and culture, hides the best pool shark. Missouri Martin - Blonde owner of the seedy club. The heart who counters Happy's influence on the Dude. Shakespeare - The slow but loyal muscle. The movie was nominated for multiple Oscars but did not win one. During this time MGM was getting annoyed with a young star by the name of Clark Gable. To send him a message they loaned his contract to the no-name Capra for a silly movie about a bus ride that would surely flop. To add insult to injury he was to be paired with the often miscast, problem child Claudette Colbert, who was secured with a large check and a promise to finish in four weeks. What resulted was "It Happened One Night" which w ...

(Anthony J Hilder) “My High School sweetheart played the role of Vivian Leigh mother in Gone With the Wind. Her name is Phyllis Callow and she was the directors daughter of Gone With the Wind which oddly enough was my daughters boyfriends father. She was in Star Trek. Phyllis Callow was my High School sweetheart who was Bonnie in Gone With The Wind. There is two Bonnies.. the younger one was my girlfriend. Bonnie’s mother was Vivian Leigh in the movie and her father was Clark Gable...who was the father of Clark Gable jr who fortunately did not marry my daughter Tori. Ive had enough tragedies in my life to avoid that catastrophe.”

We never really know what makes us who and what we are. Not the whole of it. Anyone who really knows me realizes I am a lover of film, so much so that I considered pursuing a major in film history through the Popular Culture Department at BGSU. My taste in film actors and actresses has always been very Old Hollywood: Cary Grant, Clark Gable, Gregory Peck. Vivien Leigh, Carole Lombard and Judy Garland. In the last decade or so, as I've grown as a person, I've become an aficionado of indie (independent film). Philip Seymour Hoffman long ago found a special place in my heart. Last night I watched "Jack Goes Boating." His portrayal of a lonely, middle-aged schmuck was so real and so honest that I cried when he cried. Hoffman really was a consummate actor. He may be remembered for "Capote," but I will remember him for the little movies he favored. I'm sad he died so young. Sad for him, for those who loved him and for all of us who saw in him glimpses of our own frailties. Aside from his occasional role as th . ...
my favourite is Clark Gable and Carole Lombard. Tragic, but it was the time Clark still had the smile in his eyes.
From Grandest Romantic Gestures Ever.For their first date, Carole Lombard bought Clark Gable a beat up Model T Ford for $15, had it painted white with red hearts, and delivered with a note saying "You're driving me crazy". Ha!
"In our film profession you may have Clark Gable`s looks, Spencer Tracy`s art, Marlene Dietrich`s legs or Elizabeth Taylor`s violet eyes, but they don`t mean a thing without that swinging thing called courage." Frank Capra
Los Angeles, June 22, 2005 — The American Film Institute revealed the top movie quotes of all time in AFI's 100 Years...100 Movie Quotes, a three-hour special television event on CBS hosted by actor and action star Pierce Brosnan with commentary from many of Hollywood's most celebrated actors and filmmakers. A jury of 1,500 film artists, critics and historians selected "Frankly, my dear, I don't give a *** " spoken by Clark Gable in the celebrated Civil War epic, GONE WITH THE WIND as the most memorable movie quote of all time.
One of my all-time favorite pieces of cinematic soap, from 1961. And it fits into today's theme: Clark Gable and Vivien Leigh were to have been reunited for this film, but Gable died just before filming was to start, and if he wasn't going to do it, Leigh wasn't either. Their roles were ultimately taken by Dean Jagger and, in her last theatrical film, Claudette Colbert. Troy Donahue had the title role, and Connie Stevens, Diane McBain, Karl Malden, Dub Taylor, and, in a one-line part, Carroll O'Connor also starred. Writer-producer-director Delmer Daves was a master of sumptuous soap, and he didn't disappoint here.

02-13-14 ON THIS DAY IN HISTORY 1932: ‘Free Eats’, the first Our Gang short comedy to feature Spanky MacFarland. 1939: Producer David O. Selznick replaced directors on Gone With the Wind. George Cukor was out, Victor Fleming was in after completing The Wizard of Oz. Vivien Leigh liked Cukor who was known for directing women, but Clark Gable convinced the producers that they needed an action director. About 15 minutes of George Cukor’s work remains in the picture. Victor Fleming loved Clark, but didn't get along with Vivien Leigh and came to hate the controling Selznick. David O. brought in Sam Wood to direct second unit when Fleming fell behind. At the end Victor Fleming had one more tantrum when Selznick proposed giving Wood and Cukor co- screen credit.. Yet despite it all, Gone with the Wind became a box office phenomenon. Years later Clark Gable came up to Selznick at a party and said: "Maybe I'm wrong about disliking you David, 'Gone With the Wind' keeps getting re-released and keeps me a star . ...

15 THINGS YOU DIDN'T KNOW OF KISSING There’s more to kissing than most people think. These are collections of facts about kissing. Some are brought by science or show business. 1. Thirty-seven percent of men keep their eyes open while kissing whereas 97 percent of women close theirs. 2. A one minute kiss can burn as many as twenty six calories. 3. Research shows that almost every muscle in the body can be used when two people kiss. 4. It is said that if you kiss a person with the same hair color as you, the result is more passionate. 5. In a lifetime we can expect to receive some 25,000 kisses, ranging from pecks on the cheek to the full-blown weak-at-the-kne es variety. 6. Our brains have special neurons which help us to locate another pair of lips in the dark. 7. A kiss can be ten times more effective than morphine in reducing pain, as it’s thought that it activates the body’s natural pain-killers. So when a mother tells her injured child that she’ll kiss it better, that’s exactly what she doe ...
We're Knights of the Round Table. We dance whene'er we're able. We do routines and chorus scenes With footwork impeccable. We dine well here in Camelot. We eat ham and jam and spam a lot. We're Knights of the Round Table. Our shows are formidable, But many times we're given rhymes That are quite unsingable. We're opera mad in Camelot. We sing from the diaphragm a lot. In war we're tough and able, Quite indefatigable. Between our quests we sequin vests and impersonate Clark Gable. It's a busy life in Camelot. I have to push the pram a lot.
I’ll tell you one thing, if things keep going the way they are, it’s going to be impossible to buy a week’s groceries for $10.00.   Have you seen the new cars coming out next year?  It won’t be long before $1,000.00 will only buy a used one.     If cigarettes keep going up in price, I’m going to quit; 20 cents a pack is ridiculous.   Did you hear the post office is thinking about charging 7 cents just to mail a letter.   If they raise the minimum wage to $1.00, nobody will be able to hire outside help at the store.   When I first started driving, who would have thought gas would someday cost 25 cents a gallon. Guess we’d be better off leaving the car in the garage.   I’m afraid to send my kids to the movies any more.  Ever since they let Clark Gable get by with saying *** in GONE WITH THE WIND, it seems every new movie has either *** or *** in it.   I read the other day where some scientist thinks it’s possible to put a man on the moon by the end of the century.

~Shirley Temple~1928-2014~ A brilliant life celebrated. Shirley Temple was easily the most popular and famous child star of all time. She got her start in the movies at the age of three and soon progressed to super stardom. Shirley could do it all: act, sing and dance and all at the age of five! Fans loved her as she was bright, bouncy and cheerful in her films and they ultimately bought millions of dollars worth of products that had her likeness on them. Dolls, phonograph records, mugs, hats, dresses, whatever it was, if it had her picture on there they bought it. Shirley was box-office champion for the consecutive years 1935-36-37-38, beating out such great grown-up stars as Clark Gable, Bing Crosby, Robert Taylor, Gary Cooper and Joan Crawford. By 1939, her popularity declined. Although she starred in some very good movies like Since You Went Away (1944) and the The Bachelor and the Bobby-Soxer (1947), her career was nearing its end. Later, she served as an ambassador to Ghana and Czechoslovakia. It wa ...

Things I didn't know about Shirley Temple: 1. For several years in her early childhood, she was the most popular movie star in the world, with Clark Gable a distant second. 2. She announced her mastectomy, and talked openly about her breast cancer, in an era when it was a taboo subject, and is widely viewed as having greatly helped take away the stigma and encourage women to examine often and act early. 3. She was hugely respected as an international diplomat, including by people who first thought she got the job because of her childhood fame. 4. When she was in her teens, Producer Arthur Freed exposed himself to her. She responded with an uncontrollable fit of the giggles, and got kicked out of his office. 5. She was the first white female movie star to get away with holding hands onscreen with an African-American performer (Bill Bojangles Robinson). R.I.P., Shirley.

Historically, Mount Clemens' largest industry was the mineral baths that were scattered throughout the city from 1873 until 1974. The city once encompassed 11 bathhouses and several hotels at its peak. The first bathhouse was built in 1873 and was known as “The Original” and was located on the corner of Jones and Water Street. The bathhouse remained until 1883 when the building burned, yet was rebuilt in 1884 and accommodated larger crowds. Over the years, noted visitors such as film actors Clark Gable and Mae West, athletes Babe Ruth and Jack Dempsey, news magnate William Randolph Hearst, and the Vanderbilt family vacationed in the city for the bath industry
Jack was another one who looked so much better with a mustache: Clark Gable, Tyrone Power, Ronald Colman...
OK, Here's the real GOOD list. These phenomenal stars have two things in common. They've all WON acting Oscars. And they have all been in THREE, count 'em, THREE--OSCAR winning Best Pictures. Dustin Hoffman, Clark Gable, Meryl Streep, Shirley MacLaine, Jack Nicholson, Diane Keaton and Morgan Freeman. And Hoffman, Streep, and Gable all got acting Oscar nominations in all three!
It's so interesting that, in all of his early films, when he was just starting to establish himself, Clark Gable hadn't grown his mustache yet. The story I heard was that he had to grow it for a role, and liked it so much he kept it. Here he in the film that really made him, with Norma Shearer, in 1931's "A Free Soul." Some pretty hot stuff going on in this one, even by today's standards.
Clark Gable (quick bio) Clark Gable's mother died when he was seven months old. At 16 he quit high school, went to work in an Akron (Ohio) tire factory and decided to become an actor after seeing the play "The Bird of Paradise". He toured in stock companies, worked oil fields and sold ties. In 1924 he reached Hollywood with the help of Portland, Oregon, theatre manager Josephine Dillon, who coached and later married him (she was 17 years his senior). After playing a few bit parts he returned to the stage, becoming lifelong friends with Lionel Barrymore. After several failed screen tests (for Barrymore and Darryl F. Zanuck), Gable was signed in 1930 by MGM's Irving Thalberg. Joan Crawford asked for him as co-star in Dance, Fools, Dance (1931) and the public loved him manhandling Norma Shearer in A Free Soul (1931) the same year. His unshaven lovemaking with bra-less Jean Harlow in Red Dust (1932) made him MGM's most important star. At one point he refused an assignment and the studio punished him by loanin ...

First African American woman to win Academy Award for Best Actress in 1939. My personal comments are below: Please celebrate Black History Month with me! Would love to have you read along. I HATED the movie Gone With the Wind when I saw it for the first time after its second re-release in 1961, in Hollywood, California. I think it played at the Pantages Theater with a gigantic screen, the most fantastic sound system, and a million seats! I was sixteen-years old, and I didn't hate it because of anything related to slavery in the South. I hated it because little Bonnie died. She broke her neck after falling off her pony, and her father, Rhett Butler, played by Clark Gable, would not bury her, as he was inconsolable. He kept her in his room for three days, because she had always been afraid of the dark and had to sleep with a nightlight on when she went to bed. He worshiped his "Bonnie Blue" and refused to put her in the ground. Moreover, it became the single most depressing scene I had experienced in any fi ...
Happy Birthday to Victor Herbert (1859), who almost single-handedly established the American musical theater; Hugo von Hofmannsthal (1874), Richard Strauss' primary librettist; Yevgeny Zamyatin (1884), author of the dystopian novel "We," which Huxley claims had no influence on "Brave New World," but which has many parallels to it; John Ford (1894) director of some of the greatest Westerns ever made, as well as fine dramas like "Arrowsmith," "Young Mr. Lincoln," "The Grapes of Wrath," "Tobacco Road," "How Green Was My Valley," and "The Quiet Man"; Clark Gable (1901), not one of my favorite stars, but undeniably important in cinematic history; George Pal (1908), who produced such science fiction classics as "The War of the Worlds," "When Worlds Collide," "The Time Machine," and the wonderfully quirky "7 Faces of Dr. Lao"; Renata Tebaldi (1922), who, I don't care what anyone says, was superior to Callas; Boris Yeltsin (1931), who established the modern Russian state, for better or worse; Sherman Hemsley (193 ...

Astrology of Aquarius: Physical Qualities and Activities Aquarians are far and away the most physically attractive sign in the zodiac, especially around the eyes, because the sign rules that area (as well as the lower legs). Just as the boy in the hieroglyph is beautiful because of a few soft feminine features, so too is each Aquarian blessed with androgynous good looks: men will have a feminine feature or two, women a masculine few. Most Aquarians have angular faces, not round, and slight builds. Each step is rather light, and the independent streak shows in how an Aquarian manages to avoid bumping into people. The list of beautiful female Aquarians, then, is quite long: Jeanne Moreau, Tallulah Bankhead, Mia Farrow, Kim Novak, Vanessa Redgrave, Princess Caroline, Geena Davis, Nastassia Kinski, Katherine Ross, Suzanne Pleshette, Princess Stephanie, Christie Brinkley, Barbara Hershey, Lana Turner, Tina Louise, Jane Seymour, Cybil Shepherd, and Vanna White. Handsome male Aquarians include Clark Gable, James ...

THE MERRY WIDOW (1925) This silent romantic drama/black comedy film was directed and written by Erich von Stroheim...perhaps the most meticulous Director ever. Stroheim who immegrated to America in 1925 and directed Greed (1924) which is said to have nearly ten hours of filmed material. His unwillingness or inability to modify his artistic principles and vision, for the commercial cinema, his extreme attention to detail, his insistence on near-total artistic freedom and the resulting costs of his films led to fights with the studios, particularly MGM who released Greed and produced The Merry Widow. As time went on he received fewer directing opportunities. Released by MGM, the film stars Mae Murray, John Gilbert and Roy D'Arcy.The film is based on the Franz Lehár's opera of the same name and was the second adaptation of the opera, the first being released in Hungary in 1918. Joan Crawford and Clark Gable also had uncredited roles in the film. While a print of the film still survives, the end sequence sh ...

Actor STERLING HOLLOWAY (1905 – 1992) was born on this day. He moved to Hollywood in 1926 to begin a film career that lasted almost 50 years. His bushy red hair and high pitched voice meant that he almost always appeared in comedies. His first film was The Battling Kangaroo (1926), a silent picture. Over the following decades, Holloway would appear with Fred MacMurray, Gene Autry, Barbara Stanwyck, Lon Chaney Jr, Clark Gable, Joan Crawford, Bing Crosby, and David Carradine. Holloway's voice work in animated films began in 1941, when he was heard in Dumbo (1941), as the voice of Mr. Stork. Walt Disney considered him for the voice of Sleepy in Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (1937), but chose Pinto Colvig instead. Holloway was the voice of the adult Flower in Bambi (1942), the narrator of the Antarctic penguin sequence in The Three Caballeros (1944) and the narrator in the Peter and the Wolf sequence of Make Mine Music (1946). He was the voice of the The Cheshire Cat in Alice in Wonderland (1951), the nar ...
Pre code Movie Time. One of my favorites is Warner Brothers' "Night Nurse." This stars Barbara Stanwyck, Joan Blondell and features the first appearance of Clark Gable as the sadistic chauffeur, Nick. The film never would have made it past the enforcement of The Hays Code by Joseph Breen, but in 1931, things were more liberal in Hollywood and they had yet to censor themselves. Gratuitous undressing, illegal liquor and a "hero" who gets away with murder would have been nixed by Hollywood a few years later. But Warner Brothers liked to push the envelope and it was this film that got people in an uproar and was one of the reasons the code began to be enforced. Breen was a staunch Catholic with a red pen who was notorious for tossing out entire scenes (known as Breening) that went against the code. In this scene, Stanwyck and Blondell patch up a bootlegger. A must see for anyone who enjoys the prohibition era in film as well as Hollywood at the dawn of its Golden Age.
Who changed Joey Greco for Clark Gable as anchor of Cheaters? Been searching for what went wrong between Cheaters and Greco online? Greco was a perfect match, he was sadistic and his hawk like features fitted the brand.

I was tagged by Tracey O'Hara to list 10 movies that have stayed with me. Here goes: 1. Gone with the Wind. (First time I saw it, I was 13. Have adored Clark Gable ever since) 2. (And from the same year) The Wizard of Oz. (When I was a kid, they showed double features and Oz was often the other film) 3. Streetcar Named Desire (brilliant performances by Vivien Leigh, and Marlon Brando) 4. Jesus of Montreal (Canadian-French production, very powerful) 5. Women on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown (introduced me to both Pedro Almodovar and Antonio Banderas). Miss the Sunday afternoon double features at the Stanmore Cinema 6. Pump up the Volume (love Christian Slater's rebel radio jock and sexy Samantha Mathis). Heathers also came very close to making an appearance on this list. 7. Being John Malkovich.

"Theresa Harris was born on December 31, 1906 in Houston, Texas. Her career mainly consisted of film roles portraying the maid character and she was actually given the nickname "The Beautiful Maid". Although many of her roles were un-credited, she was indeed quite a talented actress and her beauty captivated the screen. Born to Isaiah and Mable Harris she was raised in Texas and later relocated to Hollywood and began working in the film industry with her first role in the film, "Thunderbolt" (1929) starring George Bancroft, Fay Wray, Richard Arlen, Tully Marshall and Eugenie Besserer. Some of her more well known roles included, "Baby Face" (1933) starring Barbara Stanwyck, George Brent, Douglass Dumbrille, Margaret Lindsay and John Wayne, "Professional Sweetheart" (1933) starring Ginger Rogers, Norman Foster and ZaSu Pitts, "Hold Your Man" (1933) starring Jean Harlow, Clark Gable and Stu Erwin, "Black Moon" (1934) starring Jack Holt, Fay Wray and Clarence Muse, "Banjo On My Knee" (1936) starring Barbara S ...

You want to know how much the city of El Paso, does not care at all about it's history? Case in point. The city destroys its historical buildings to build a parking lot, and an El Paso icon (aka Asarco smoke stacks ). Well, I bet that most did not know that actor Kurt Russel played for the El Paso Diablos. I am also willing to bet, that the city did not know that actor Clark Gable was stationed at Biggs Army Airfield, as a Commissioned Officer. Aside from a middle school named after Nolan Richardson; Bowie High School, and the Segundo Barrio should build an art piece in his honor. A similar piece of artwork should be built in the memory of Clark Gable, and for Kurt Russel, which would include other notable Diablos' names. Heck, if the city had any common sense, they should invite Kurt to throw a first pitch for one game; possibly the first game. Just a thought.
The only disappointing thing about movies is the fact that most people I am attracted to are already dead or 80 years old :/ Clark Gable, Gene Wilder, Patrick Swayze, Errol Flynn, Warren Beatty, River Phoenix... I guess I was born in the wrong era. Either way, I find it odd that I'm not attracted to anyone in Hollywood under the age of 30. Maybe because if my parents had me when they got married I'd already be in my mid-30's.
Celebrities flocked to Old Pueblo, Also known as TUCSON. Everyone has a story. "We saw Lee Marvin at El Minuto." "Paul McCartney asked us for directions to the cactus farm." "I went to school with (pick one) Linda Ronstadt, John Denver, Garry Shandling." Yep, Tucson has seen its share of celebrities over the years, from the infamous - Geronimo, John Dillinger - to the white-hot famous - Clark Gable, Elizabeth Taylor. Some came to film various movie scenes, sleeping in Tucson hotels and gracing our town's various watering holes. And then they were gone. Others stayed on for years, living among us, but still maintaining an aura of distance and privacy. Here then, is a brief - and we acknowledge upfront, incomplete - scrapbook of stars who once shone their lights in Tucson, some briefly, some for decades. Stewart Granger put down roots in ranch Of all the Hollywood glitterati that ever hung their hats in Southern Arizona, movie star Stewart Granger was, no doubt, the most invested. Literally. In 1957, Grange ...
Today would have been the 58th birthday of a friend of mine, Bob Munzer. I got to know him back in 1980 and we ended up as roommates for eight years and friends for 16 until AIDS took him in 1996. Perhaps it was fitting that when I cabbed home from the Powerhouse tonight, a song was playing on the cabbie's radio that reminded me of the times 30-some-odd years ago when we sit in the kitchen of our house on Ord Court, make coffee and small talk. We were not lovers because I wasn't his physical ideal, but we loved each other. I taught him about old movies and he came to love "It Happened One Night" enough that when we hitched a ride from the Oakland Coliseum after a 16-inning game, he hitched up his jeans in the same way Claudette Colbert hitched up her skirt to teach Clark Gable how to get a ride. The song tonight was a long-forgotten but beautiful song about the longing of love by England Dan and John Ford Coley called, "I'd Really Love to See You Tonight." Tears welled in my eyes. Happy Birthday, Bob.
La Mustache K.K. Ramamurthy The other day, while I was trimming my mustache, disaster struck. I made a gaping hole right in the middle that made it impossible for me to keep my mustache any longer. I had to take it off. So sad, so sad indeed. I was not mentally ready to face the world without my mustache shielding me. After all I was never without it, since I first got it at 17 or 18. My father had a mustache and its style, he told us proudly, was called “Talwar” cut. I grew up admiring mustaches of Ronald Colman, Clark Gable and Raj Kapoor. Two of my favorite musicians wear mustaches. Most Indian men of my generation grew mustaches. Of course, I knew people with big bushy mustaches were up to no good. They twirl their mustaches menacingly and scare the heroines. All bad guys in our mythology have such mustaches. Fox News Geraldo Rivera got it too. True, I had toyed with the idea of taking it off while on a long trip to Europe, The idea being I would be emotionally adjusted to face the people I ...

Charleston Community Theatre will hold auditions for Ron Hutchinson's comedy, Moonlight and Magnolias, Tuesday, Jan. 7 at 7 pm at the Tarble Arts Center on 9th Street in Charleston. If necessary, a night of callbacks will be held Jan. 8 at Tarble, also at 7:00. The plot: It's 1939, and David Selznick has just shut down production on the biggest film of his career: Gone With the Wind. The direction's too slow, the script not to his liking. He calls in Ben Hecht, a respected screenwriter to rework the script but there's a small problem. Hecht hasn't read The Book. Not one word. Enter director Victor Flemming. These three guys, locked in Selzick's office attempt to churn out a winning screenplay in just five days. The characters: David O. Selznick, producer. Elegant, hard-working, a deal-maker. Doesn't know the meaning of the word "quit." Ben Hecht, screenwriter: tweedy, also hard-working, down-to-earth, practical. Victor Fleming, director: pal of Clark Gable's, respected director, tough guy, knows his stuf ...

Nearly 8 years ago I made a list of my Top 400 favorite stars of all-time. And Peter O'Toole was in that ranking. I don't think my tastes have changed much in that time and here's how 1-11 were then. Starting with Marlon Brando, then it's Humphrey Bogart, Robert De Niro, Al Pacino, James Cagney, Clint Eastwood, Greta Garbo, Bette Davis, Gary Cooper, Steve McQueen and Paul Newman. And after O'Toole there's Spencer Tracy, then Burt Lancaster, Jack Nicholson, Marilyn Monroe, Richard Burton, Michael Caine, Dustin Hoffman, Clark Gable, James Stewart, Sean Connery, Robert Duvall, Ingrid Bergman, Gregory Peck, Henry Fonda, Warren Beatty, John Wayne, Anthony Quinn, Rod Steiger, James Dean and Cary Grant. That should give you a pretty good idea of my tastes.
I've never believed that: Lana Turner was discovered sitting on a stool at Schwab's Drugstore. Clarence Thomas wasn't sexually harassing Anita Hill. Bobby Riggs threw his match against Billie Jean. JFK Jr.'s death in his private plane crash was an accident. Microwaves destroy the nutrients in the food being cooked. OJ wasn't guilty of murder. Lee Harvey Oswald was a lone assassin. Sonny Liston didn't take a dive when he got KO'd by Cassius Clay. Eddie Fisher had an enormous *** George Washington had wooden teeth. Ronald Reagan didn't know Iran-Contra was going on. Cough drops make you stop coughing. Elizabeth Taylor had violet eyes. John Garfield died in bed in the act of screwing. The Beatles broke up because of Yoko. Clark Gable had bad breath. Yma Sumac wasn't Amy Camus. Cary Grant had the hots for Randolph Scott. Anything should be too big to fail. Will Rogers never met a man he didn't like. RFK screwed MM, too. Shakespeare wasn't Shakespeare, but was Christopher Marlowe.
“Frankly my dear, I don’t give a *** ” On this day, 1939, “Gone With The Wind” premiered in Atlanta. It stared Clark Gable and Vivien Leigh, neither of whom was the first choice. Gary Cooper was the first pick, but he hated the story and knew it would be a flop. “Better to have Gable fall on his face than me.” And finding Scarlett was even more of an adventure. 1,400 woman tried out for the part although many of those were used for publicity. About 30 actually read – Katherine Hepburn wanted the part in the worst way – and it came down to two who actually did Technicolor test shots; Vivien Leigh and Paulette Goddard. Goddard got eliminated because of a high profile marriage issue with husband, Charley Chaplin. There was a rumor that the studio got fined $5,000 for using the word *** . It doesn’t sound like much, but consider that Gable was paid about $125,000 for his part. The filming must have been quite stressful on the two leads: Leigh went through 4 packs of ciga ...
President Jimmy Carter called it "The biggest event to happen in the South in my lifetime." Georgia Governor Eurith Rivers proclaimed the day a state holiday. Atlanta Mayor William B. Hartsfield hosted three days of celebrations, climaxing with the premiere of "Gone With The Wind" at the Loew's Grand Theater. All of the white cast members attended the premiere, except Leslie Howard (Ashley Wilkes), who had returned to England with the outbreak of World War II in September. The black cast members, including soon-to-be Best Supporting Actress winner Hattie McDaniel (Mammy) boycotted the event because under Georgia law they would not be permitted to sit with the white cast members. Clark Gable (Rhett Butler) threatened to join the boycott, but McDaniel (the first black performer to win an Oscar) talked him out of it, and the premiere went on as scheduled. December 15, 1939. Seventy four years ago today.

Jane Russell - "I have always been a Republican, and when I was in Hollywood long ago, most of the people there were Republican. The studio heads were all Republican, my boss Howard Hughes was a raving Republican, and we had a motion picture code in those days so they couldn`t do all this naughty stuff. We had John Wayne, we had Charlton Heston, we had a man named Ronald Reagan, we had Robert Mitchum, James Stewart, Clark Gable."
Lee Marvin, Jimmy Stewart, Charles Durning, Clark Gable, David Niven, Chad Hennings, Pat Tillman, MC Hammer...are but a few entertainers or athletes who served with with honor in the military. The likes of Tom Cruise and Kanye West who claim to know what it is like be in the military and to go to war show ignorance beyond belief and a disrespect for those and whose families make true sacrifices for their country. I believe Mark Wahlberg has a far better understanding of what it takes after filming Lone Survivor and I bet he would love to discuss it with both West and Cruise.

The place was about to be the scene of a massacre from 1920's gangsters (in the modern world) everywhere left and right people were losing limbs and their own lifes. I trapped all the remaining gangsters in a conference room full of actors including (young) Jack Nicholson,Irene Dunne, Tina Fey,Clark Gable, James Cagney,Lee Thompson Young, Early 90's Winona Ryder(score) , and a handful of others.

Manhattan Melodrama (1934) was on TCM last night. I watched a few minutes of it and saw a teenaged Mickey Rooney playing young Clark Gable in the opening scenes. Mickey is still with us today. And to put that in a little more perspective, John Dillinger was shot coming out of this flick back during its first run at the Biograph Theater. Kind of amazing.

Final Farewell --- Eleanor Parker (1922 to 2013), one of Hollywood's most ravishing redheads in the '40s, '50s, and '60s, nominated for Oscars three times. She starred with the likes of Clark Gable, Humphrey Bogart, Charlton Heston, Robert Taylor, William Holden, John Garfield, Kirk Douglas, Frank Sinatra, Robert Vaughn and David McCallum, in films like Pride of the Marines, Of Human Bondage, Chain Lightning, Scaramouche, Caged, Detective Story, The Naked Jungle, Above and Beyond, The King and Four Queens, Man With Golden Arm, Escape From Fort Bravo, The Sound of Music, and the final Man From U.N.C.L.E. feature film How To Steal The World as a THRUSH villainess.
RIP Eleanor Parker. As a Saturday matinee kid, I was in love with this extraordinarily talented, versatile woman. I revisited her only last week in Stuart Heisler's Chain Lightning, opposite Humphrey Bogart, and was thinking what a mercurial and fascinating star she was, just as effective in the tough prison melodrama Caged; as Stewart Granger's gypsy lover in the great swashbuckler Scaramouche; as opera diva Marjorie Lawrence in Interrupted Melody; playing three separate roles in Lizzie and two in The Woman in White; opposite Kirk Douglas in William Wyler's potent Detective Story; corralling wily Clark Gable in Raoul Walsh's enjoyable King and Four Queens; as one of the women with a secret in Robert Wise's Three Secrets; as the Baroness in the same director's blockbuster musical, The Sound of Music; and teamed effectively with Frank Sinatra in both the high drama of Preminger's The Man with the Golden Arm and the relaxed comedy of Capra's A Hole in the Head. RIP beautiful Eleanor.
Brigid Berlin was the eldest of daughter of socialite parents, "Honey" and *** Berlin, born into a world of Manhattan privilege. Her father was chairman of the Hearst media empire for 32 years. As a child, Berlin regularly mixed with celebrities and the powerful: "I would pick up the phone and it would be Richard Nixon. My parents entertained Lyndon Johnson, J. Edgar Hoover, and there were lots of Hollywood people because of San Simeon – Clark Gable, Joan Crawford... I have a box of letters, written to my parents in the late 40s and 50s from the Duchess of Windsor." Her socialite mother worried about Brigid's weight and attempted to get her to lose it by any means, from cash for every pound to having the doctor prescribe amphetamines. Berlin recalled, "My mother wanted me to be a slim, respectable socialite. Instead, I became an overweight troublemaker." She briefly married John Parker, a window dresser. They married in 1960 and later divorced. As Warhol observed, "When Brigid brought her fiancé home . ...

The house on Linden Drive in Beverly Hills where Bugsy Siegel was shot & killed on June 20, 1947. American mobster, gambler, bootlegger, operator of off-shore casinos, prostitution rings, extorter of movie studios, blackmailer of lobbyists who moved from NYC to Los Angeles in 1936 & became a friend of Gary Cooper, Clark Gable, Cary Grant & Jean Harlow and just about everyone else in Hollywood. He was peppered with bullets shot through the LR window of this very house, bang, bang.. no more Bugsy! The house still looks identical at least from the outside. Bugsy is entombed at "Hollywood Forever Cemetary" & his murder is still considered "unsolved". It is said only that Bugsy was rubbed out by "an enemy". Yes, I would think so too! Fascinating subject this man Bugsy.

We exchanged handwritten letters (gasp!) until we were 8, then I have no idea what happened to her. I think about her all the time and wonder where she is, and who she grew up to be. 2. I am deathly afraid of heights and speed, and had not been on a roller coaster for 15 years, until recently at Knotts Scary Farm. I screamed like a little girl. 3. I have crushes on several great, dead men...and regret I will never get to meet them in real life: Jack Lemmon (my all time John Adams, Harold Llyod, Clark Gable, H.G. Wells, and Charles Dickens. I don't think Tom minds since they're dead. Bob Hope doesn't count (circa 'Lemon Drop Kid'. I met him when I was 8, and his autograph hangs in our hallway). 4. I did not sew a stitch until I was 38, and discovered I am a fantastic seamstress, I should have started years ago ...
Clark Gable may be the best host of Cheaters lol. Joey Greco never hopped on a dirt bike to chase anybody down.

Luann Yetter has assigned me the 8-weird facts-about myself essay. So: 1. My mother went to high school with Spiro Agnew, though she barely knew him. 2. From when I was 5 until I was 10 we lived in Los Angeles where my parents ran a laundry on the perimeter of the U.S.C. campus. Not far from where: 3. My mother wept the night Clark Gable died. I remember it vividly (I was 8!) I was puzzled and peeved -- it was as though he was some dear family member. 4. I went to 6th thru 9th grade at a private boys' military school where I eventually made corporal in their stupid officer corps. I quit when I heard "Sgt. Pepper's" for the first time. 5. Nils Lofgren's band Grin often played at dances at my alma mater, UMBC -- they were amazing and we were all certain that they were "The Next Beatles." 6. In April 1974 I approached Allen Ginsberg and Peter Orlovsky as they ate Senate Bean Soup in a cafeteria in the U.S. Capitol building just prior to a reading at the Library of Congress; they invited me to sit down and ga ...

No Shave November marches on. Today's topic is most significant Hollywood facial hair. Beard: Chuck Norris. No need for discussion there, I think. (runner-up Orson Welles) Goatee: Robert Downey Jr. Almost no winner here. Very few actors really associated with goatees throughout history, but the Iron Man beard gets the nod. Sideburns: Luke Perry. In the early 90's, NO ONE was wearing sideburns. He completely changed the game. Mustache: Tom Selleck/Sam Elliott. Toughest category to decide. Also in the running were Burt Reynolds, Clark Gable, and Wilford Brimley. Misc: Mr. T. Not sure how to classify his facial hair, but it was awesome. Tomorrow we take a look at fictional facial hair.

Can't sleep no watch shows are on. I'm thinking and praying for Mrs. Haynes. She loved romantic movies always a big smile on her face. And some would make her cry. Her favorite of all time was "Somewhere In Time" staring Christopher Reeves aka Superman Also Jane Seymour. She would watch this movie over and over again. Two times was enough for me with her and she enjoyed it. I never could understand why women would watch " Gone With the Wind" Clark Gable and Vivian Leigh so many times. I came to the conclusion there are some things that make people happy others may not understand.
It's a sad day when you realize it IS true. They did replace Joey Greco from CHEATERS with Clark Gable's oaf of a grandson with the same name. Horrific does not begin to express...is nothing sacred???
Well my time here out west has come to an end. Oscar,Emmy actor,singer,songwriter Paul Williams ended the conference with his singing,story telling and comic relief and gratitude regarding his 23 years in recovery. It was a real treat. I love spending time here with my EAP friends in their world at this annual conference and miss it. Took a tour of the Biltmore known as the jewel in the desert. Heard about all the stars Clark Gable, Liza Minelli, the rat pack etc... As well as all the presidents since Hoover and their visits here. Feeling rejuvinated
I use to think Joey Greco was a cheesy slimeball who played off others emotions,now the dude's name is seriously Clark Gable!?! Franky he doesn't give a ***
David O. Selznick, Vivien Leigh, Victor Fleming, Carole Lombard and Clark Gable at the "Gone with the Wind" wrap party, 1939.
Upon their return to California after their honeymoon, Clark Gable and Carole Lombard were greeted by Clark’s new mother-in-law, Elizabeth Peters. Details about their honeymoon - or apparent lack of one - as reported by various sources: Clark Gable himself said, “We were married at three-thirty that afternoon and left at five-thirty, getting home the next morning at three. Carole’s mother was there, all excited, which kept us up till five. Finally we got to sleep, only to be awakened at nine to discover forty cameraman, three newsreel men and twenty reporters waiting out in the front yard to interview us.” (Photoplay, Vivien Leigh, Rhett Butler and I, Feb. 1940) TIME Magazine reported: “Immediately after the ceremony, Mr. & Mrs. Gable started back to Hollywood. They told reporters they would not take a honeymoon until Gable was through making Gone With the Wind, and Lombard her next picture, Memory of Love, for RKO.” (TIME, Boy Meets Girl, April 10, 1939) “Gable got a day off. He and Carole ...
