"Frankly, my dear, I support Children's Miracle Network" -Clark Gable, Gone with the Wind
As part of our two-part Hollywood stars of the Eighth, we feature Clark Gable: Gable reported to Biggs Army Air Base on January 27, 1943, to train with and accompany the 351st Bomb Group to England as head of a six-man motion picture unit. Gable was promoted to captain while he was with the 351st Bomb Group at Pueblo Army Air Base, Colorado, hold a rank commensurate with his position as a unit commander. Gable spent most of 1943 in England at RAF Polebrook with the 351st Bomb Group. Gable flew five combat missions, including one to Germany, as an observer-gunner in B-17 Flying Fortresses between May 4 and September 23, 1943, earning the Air Medal and the Distinguished Flying Cross for his efforts. During one of the missions, Gable's aircraft was damaged by flak and attacked by fighters, which knocked out one of the engines and shot up the stabilizer. In the raid on Germany, one crewman was killed and two others were wounded, and flak went through Gable's boot and narrowly missed his head. When word of th ...

Greetings friends, here's a new poem from me, one of my strongest works. The poem is quite long, but nonetheless I am greatly proud and excited to share this with you all. Please like, share and comment. This poem is titled 'Seppuku (Shin'ainaru Chichi)' ** Falling, wish I could remember the day you stopped loving me, more, So I could have stopped crying, and dying is wrong, They may, as I am, forget what it's like, Ronin, masterless, and bound by their plight, Gallows, I am, in the gallows, Who is he if not you, in a place like this, Papa's not a rolling stone, he's an acid mist, Let him Clark Gable and be gone with the wind, And in earnestness, am I a melancholic troubadour, Pathos, pathos, pathos, anymore, Am I so enigmatic or Socratic a boy? I might drown myself in the bathtub, And spit a trail of tears down my back, as I wonder aloud, Why'd you love me when I couldn't talk back, And why can't you love me now, Is it too hard to consider I'm a frame of a forgotten year, Michelangelo age, phenomenon day ...

What you may not know about the DUKE John Wayne, draft dodger? Oh, what delicious (if cheap) irony! But that judgment is a little harsh. As Garry Wills tells the story in his book John Wayne's America: The Politics of Celebrity (1997), the Duke faced a tough choice at the outset of World War II. If he wimped out, don't be so sure a lot of us wouldn't have done the same. At the time of Pearl Harbor, Wayne was 34 years old. His marriage was on the rocks but he still had four kids to support. His career was taking off, in large part on the strength of his work in the classic western Stagecoach (1939). But he wasn't rich. Should he chuck it all and enlist? Many of Hollywood's big names, such as Henry Fonda, Jimmy Stewart, and Clark Gable, did just that. (Fonda, Wills points out, was 37 at the time and had a wife and three kids.) But these were established stars. Wayne knew that if he took a few years off for military service, there was a good chance that by the time he got back he'd be over the hill. Besides, ...

Gone with the Wind is a 1939 American epic historical romance film adapted from Margaret Mitchell's Pulitzer-winning 1936 novel and produced by David O. Selznick, of Selznick International Pictures. Set in the 19th-century American South, the film tells the story of Scarlett O'Hara, played by Vivien Leigh, and her romantic pursuit of Ashley Wilkes (Leslie Howard) who is married to his cousin, Melanie Hamilton (Olivia de Havilland), and her marriage to Rhett Butler (Clark Gable). Set against the backdrop of the American Civil War and Reconstruction era, the story is told from the perspective of white Southerners. The production of the film was troubled from the start. Filming was delayed for two years due to David O. Selznick's determination to secure Clark Gable for the role of Rhett Butler, and the "search for Scarlett" led to 1,400 women being interviewed for the part. The original screenplay was written by Sidney Howard, but underwent many revisions by several writers in an attempt to get it down to a ...
Benjamin "Bugsy" Siegel, the man who brought organized crime to the West Coast, is shot and killed on this day in 1947, at his mistress Virginia Hill's home in Beverly Hills, California. Siegel had been talking to his associate Allen Smiley when three bullets were fired through the window and into his head, killing him instantly. Siegel's childhood had been pretty similar to that of other organized crime leaders: Growing up with little money in Brooklyn, he managed to establish himself as a teenage thug. With his pal Meyer Lansky, Siegel terrorized local peddlers and collected protection money. Before long, they had a business that included bootlegging and gambling all over New York City. By the late 1930s, Siegel had become one of the major players of a highly powerful crime syndicate, which gave him $500,000 to set up a Los Angeles franchise. Bugsy threw himself into the Hollywood scene, making friends with some of the biggest names of the time--Cary Grant, Clark Gable, and Jean Harlow. His all-night pa ...

June 19, 2014 is National Martini Day Today is National Martini Day! Although the exact origin of the martini is unknown, this iconic drink has earned a permanent place in the pantheon of classic cocktails. The first printed recipe for a “Martinez” cocktail appeared in a bartending manual published in San Francisco in 1887. However, historians disagree over whether the beverage actually originated on the West Coast. In 1911, a New York City bartender named Martini di Arma di Taggia began serving a cocktail made with gin, vermouth, orange bitters, and an olive garnish. The martini gained widespread popularity among Manhattan socialites, and has been associated with New York ever since. Today, 50% of all cocktails are served in a martini glass. Some of the most famous (historical and fictional) martini lovers include: John D. Rockefeller, Humphrey Bogart, Franklin D. Roosevelt, Clark Gable, Ernest Hemingway, and James Bond. To celebrate National Martini Day, enjoy a refreshing martini in the company of ...

I received this from a friend that I have known for over 50 yrs thought you all would get a laugh out of it even if its long the pictures didn't come out. Subject: The year was 1955 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. They even have some fellows they call astronauts preparing for it down in Texas .. Did you see where some baseball player just signed a contract for $50,000 a year just to play ball? It wouldn't surprise .. ...

I would say this photo was probably taken in the 40’s. Any guesses where it use to be on Route 1?

Looking east on a newly widened I Street heading towards 8th in 1935, and same view today. In 1934, traffic along U.S. 99-70 (I Street) was steadily increasing because not only was it part of the Ocean To Ocean Highway from the East Cost to the West, but it also served as the main transport route from the Coachella Valley to Los Angeles for many trucks. When the road was widened to the north, many of the buildings that were along the north side were either demolished and rebuilt or moved back. The buildings on the south side of the street remained intact. Another interesting note is that many movies stars from the 1920-50's passed through Colton on I Street on their way to Palm Springs from Hollywood, such as Frank Sinatra, Lucille Ball & Desi Arnaz, Bob Hope, Clark Gable...etc. So in a sense, I street has some history to it.
Posted 6-8-14 Audrey Mary Totter, born December 20, 1917, was an American actress and Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer contract star. She began her acting career in radio in the late 1930s, and, following success in Chicago and New York, was signed to a seven-year film contract with MGM. She made her film debut in Main Street After Dark in 1945 and established herself as a popular female lead. Although she appeared in various film genres, she became most widely known to movie audiences in film noir productions. By the early 1950s, the tough-talking "dames" she was best known for portraying were no longer fashionable, she was released from her contract. She reportedly was dissatisfied with her MGM career and agreed to appear in Any Number Can Play only after Clark Gable intervened. She worked for Columbia Pictures and 20th Century Fox, but the quality of her films dropped, and by the end of the 1950s, her career was in decline. In 1954, she appeared in the pilot episode of the later 1957-1958 detective series, Meet M . ...

By request from Gill Turnbull Shaw, here are some "Fun Facts" about the 1939 film, "Gone With the Wind." "Fun Facts" on the book will come tomorrow: (1) Clark Gable threatened to refuse to attend the film's premiere in Atlanta because Hattie McDaniel was unable to (due to segregation). McDaniel persuaded him to go anyway. (2) Clark Gable disliked this film, since he regarded it as "a woman's picture." (3) Fourteen hundred actresses were interviewed for the role of Scarlett O'Hara, and 400 were invited to do readings. In a poll of book fans, actress Vivien Leigh only received one vote. (4) A prominent Atlanta preacher, Martin Luther King, Sr. attended the cotillion ball held at the film's Atlanta premier. He brought along his son, Martin Luther King, Jr. (5) Margaret Mitchell, the author of the book, disliked the scale of the Tara and Twelve Oaks sets. However, she might take consolation in receiving $50,000 for the rights to her book, then the largest sum paid for an author's first novel.

John Wayne: SUPER PATRIOT??? A MOST interesting FACT about John Wayne--who became a symbol of Americanism, patriotism, and fighting for our rights as Americans. And YET.this great patriot, 34 years old at the start of WW2--never enlisted. He thought about it. He made movies when almost every male Hollywood star, including James Stewart, Clark Gable, Tyrone Power.was getting into "This Man's Army." The Duke stalled and stalled and never entered WW2 in any capacity--other than entertaining the troops. One of his wives said that Wayne's ultra-conservative posturings in later life were a direct result of the abuse he'd taken for dodging the war, and of his massive guilt over it. Wow. THAT is something to think about.
Dream Come True! Marilyn Monroe used to fantasize about Clark Gable as a child - she had a very active imagination. She saw him as an older man type fantasy. Someone who would take care of her. The Misfits was her last completed film in 1961. By then, she was difficult to work with. She looks happy in this photo. Probably because she was thinking that not only was she acting with her idol, but involved with President Kennedy - the only one, by then, whose star was shining brighter than hers. The affair would cost her everything. The movie also stars Montgomery Cliff and is about bringing in wild horses. Marilyn Monroe was a Christian Scientist much like my idol, Eliot Ness and my favorite actor, Val Kilmer.

A beautifully-written eulogy to Mickey Rooney appears in the last issue of Time magazine -- written by 97-year-old Olivia DeHavilland. It describes her first meeting with Rooney as they performed in "A Midsummer Night's Dream" during 1934, and another as they prepared to appear at the 75th anniversary of the Academy Awards in 2004. The piece is just eleven sentences -- and full of memory and emotion. As her character, Melanie Wilkes, was described by Clark Gable in "Gone With the Wind," DeHavilland is "a great lady. A very great lady."
I never laugh until I've had my coffee. - Clark Gable to Carole Lombard in movie "No Man of Her Own." …
" The cut of the male star was formerly more robust: Charlton Heston, Humphrey Bogart, Clark Gable – these were men’s men, manoeuvring from the Alexandrian chariot to the Western Front with a raised eyebrow in place. But the type of machismo with which Hollywood used to cash cheques, which slipped so easily into the rhythm of day-saving and woman-placating, is now all but redundant. George Clooney is perhaps the only contemporary relic of that 1940s flavour of heterosexuality. With a Cary Grant jawline and non-threatening cool, Clooney lingers as a housewives’ favourite, occasionally modernising his brand with political activism and dips into independent pictures. He banks on a nostalgia for the screen heroes that preceded him. "
My fave westerns are The Searchers w/ the Duke and Natalie Wood, Stagecoach w/ John Carradine and like Richard Widmark/Clark Gable to boot.

All of my movie stars are either too old to act, play character parts now or are in the memories section of the Academy Awards. No more Paul Newman, Liz Taylor, Charlton Heston, Betty Grable, Bette Davis, Marilyn Monroe, Jane Russell, Clark Gable, or Jimmy Stewart. Oh well, even 'tho they are old, I still love Robert Duval, Robert DeNiro, and Al Pacino. Meryl Streep and Dustin Hoffman are even getting more mature parts these days. If Tom Hanks gets grey, I'm quitting the movies. ha.
Check out this shot of Clark Gable as Rhett Butler and Vivien Leigh as Scarlett O'Hara.

In observation of the recent passing of yet another “Our Gang” alumnus, the inimitable Mickey Rooney was born Joseph Yule, Jr. in 1920 in Brooklyn, New York City to vaudeville parents. At fourteen months old, he sneezed on stage wearing overalls and a harmonica, which prompted his father Joe Sr. to pick up his young son and introduce him as Sonny Yule. Moving Joe Jr. to Kansas City to live with his aunt, his mother Nellie was inspired by an entertainment newspaper to send her son to audition for the “Our Gang” series in Hollywood, with Hal Roach offering him a fraction of what other young stars were making at $5 a day. He went on to get more bit parts in films with such stars as Colleen Moore, Clark Gable, Douglas Fairbanks, Jr. and Jean Harlow while attending Hollywood Professional School with then-unknowns Nanette Fabray, Judy Garland and Lana Turner. Landing the role of Mickey McGuire in 1927, Joe Jr. legally changed his name to his character in order to help the producer avoid having to pa ...
I kissed you in a style, Clark Gable would admire. I thought it was classic.
Runaway Heiress - Clark Gable and Claudette Colbert star in IT HAPPENED ONE NIGHT tonight at
I was just thinking about Mickey Rooney this past week. Him and a few others like Doris Day who turned 90 this past week, and Clark Gable, James Garner, Bob Hope, Judy Garland, Danny Kay, Ben Cosby, Fred Astaire, Betty Grabble, Marilyn Monroe, Jack Lemon, Jane Russell, Rita Hayworth they don't make movie stars like these any more.
Apparently in 1953 Africa, gorillas were eating pineapples. Hmmm... this was in a movie called Mogambo with Clark Gable, Ava Gardner, & Grace Kelly. Did the gorillas have the pineapples sent from Hawaii? I love when movie 's have things in them that aren't possible or totally unrelated to where it is.
Watching Mogombo on TCM while doing laundry. Boy, Clark Gable had it rough. Ava Gardner or Grace Kelly?
Love watching classics, "Mogambo" with Clark Gable, Grace Kelly and Ava Gardner. Class and adventure in the jungle.

Ah Hollywood. Mugambo is on TCM. A young, beautiful Grace Kelly is tortured by her repressed desire for flabby old fart Clark Gable, while a Common Loon calls in the background - in Uganda.
There are a few movies you can watch infinitely. TCM is airing one now. MOGAMBO. Grace Kelly and Ava Gardner are nearly enough without great director Johb Ford, Clark Gable, the others, the real African scenery and animals.
Congratulations to the University of Connecticutt and the Uninversity of Kentucky who will face each other for the National Championship on Monday night from AT and T Stadium in Arlington, TX. Like a cartoon version of Clark Gable said in this classic cartoon called Hollywood Steps Out said, "Don't Go Away Folks, This Oughtta Be Good." I am sure it will good. For the University of Florida and the University of WIsconsin, they played good but just could not get by UConn and Kentucky. I am rooting for one of Syracuse University's old Big East Rivals UConn. I am sure Coach Calhoun and the gang will bring home another National Championship to the UConn campus. The Huskies will chase those Wild Cats out of Arlington like there is no tomorrow.
Let me tell you a story. If you are going to lose your mind about this, stop reading. I was talking to mom the phone again last night, and she said "Your brother wants me to watch all these modern movies all the time. I miss the good actors, like Clark Gable and Carol Lombard and Marlon Brando and Gene Kelly and Laurence Olivier." (me) "Mom what did he have you watch?" (mom) "A movie about a guy who had knives for hands. It was so boring." (me) "Mom, that movie was Edward Scissorhands.! It has been on here too!" (mom) "the acting was terrible and there was no singing or dancing, no good acting in it." (me) "Mom, the guy with the knives for hands is Johnny Depp! He is a fantastic actor, and has made some great movies." (mom) "I never heard of him. It was so dumb. It was about a bunch of housewives who wanted their bushes trimmed, and he did it and then they all got mad at him for no good reason."
If you go back to the 30s, Folks like Edward G Robinson, Spencer Tracy, Clark Gable, James Cagney.what remarkable actors.
I just wanted to say thanks to everyone thats been playing along in the Best Actor tournament. Its been fun doing this. I hope more of you join in the fun as we move forward. I want to recognize here a few actors that did not make the list. Spencer Tracy, Jack Lemmon, Timothy Olyphant, Jim Caveizel, Jackie Chan, Harvey Keitel, Sylvester Stallone, Eddie Murphy, Michael Douglas, Kurt Russell, Chow Yun Fat, Forest Whitaker, Gary Oldman, John Cusack, Clark Gable, Christoph Waltz, Gregory Peck Andy Lau, & James Dean. Also in forming my list I made a mistake and left someone out. Tim Roth, Star of Reservoir Dogs, Four Rooms & Planet of the Apes. All of these actors were worthy of being in the tournament but only 64 made it in. Now lets go to round 3! Seed Tom Hanks vs Seed Harrison Ford OK Every actor has a film they wish they could erase from their filmography. So for fun this round I will name a stinker for each one. Tom Hanks. The Man with One Red Shoe. Total garbage, unfunny comedy. Harrison Ford. Hollywoo ...
I was listening to that song, interpreting the lyrics. I thought about the day, one of two times that I quit wrestling. It is something at the same time I've always regretted, but at the same time, I sort of, feel, was the right thing. I know I'm not always going to be sure. My Dad wrestled. He was trained by an Olympic Gold Medal, Clark Gable, not the actor, their names just, are similar. The first time I quit I'm still sure is because the other members, of the team were people, who tried to do, all things like a competition. That team did win at State, every year, since I think, the year I was born. That attitude is what had lead, me to do, what both times, had led me to quit the teams, although partially still, I'd think I'd say was still, somewhat was, my fault. I've read a few times, that The Bible, is better considered to be about wrestling, with life, other than a book of solutions. Even though that's how people tend, to try, and look, at it. Like most good writing, one it applies to someone else's ...
Missing here, among the MGM 'Jewels In The Crown', was Clark Gable, then, a lieutenant in the US Army Air Corps.. Also, we see 1st Lieutenant James Stewart, US Army Air Corps; Pfc Desi Arnaz, US Army; Jean-Pierre Aumont, who soon would join the Free French Forces; and, Ensign Robert Taylor, US Navy Reserve.. This was taken in 1943.. Soon, Red Skelton would be called up for military duty..
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."
Great movie "Boom town" love this scene with Frank Morgan,Spencer Tracy and Clark Gable.
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.

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.

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?

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 ...
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:

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.

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.

Hint: his most famous role was in an early movie with Clint Eastwood.

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

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.
80 years ago, in 1934, It Happened One Night, starring Clark Gable & Claudette Colbert, was released. 1st film to sweep all major
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!
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.
I'm watching "It Happened One Night" starring Claudette Colbert and Clark Gable made in 1934 the best
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.
It Happened One Night just started on with Clark Gable, Claudette Colbert
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.
I adore this happy, natural shot of Clark Gable and Carole Lombard, 1940. Heartbreaking that it would be cut short.

I never laugh until I have my coffee. -Clark Gable
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.

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 ...
We have (3) tickets for "Mr. Shaw Goes to Hollywood" at the Greenhouse Theater Center for tomorrow, 2/16/2014 at 2:30PM. We bought them for $39 each, but won't be able to go. We're asking $30 each OBO. "Come to lunch with Hollywood celebrities when George Bernard Shaw and his wife Charlotte meet with Clark Gable, John Barrymore, Marion Davies, William Randolph Hearst and Louis B. Mayer on the set of MGM Studios. Based on a true story, this Hollywood comedy is told in 1930s style as only the wit and wisdom of George Bernard Shaw can evoke." Hit me up if you're interested. Thanks!
I still feel a bit rough after the op, but slowly Im getting better, though my hearing is terrible. Im considering doing a course on Hollywood portraits, and then looking for volunteers. Imagine yourself as Claudette Colbert, Vivian Leigh, Ginger Rodgers, Fred Astaire, Clark Gable or maybe Jimmy Stewart.
Sat. Snow-Snow-Snowy Two 1. (sure this is a repeat, but, isn't a lot of life a simple repeat?) What sort of things, from simple to complex, did you do for playtime as a kid? 2. IS it just me, but is today's generation missing the equivalent of a Walter Cronkite, Edward R. Murrow, Clark Gable, Spencer Tracy, Joanne Woodward, Marilyn Monroe, Red Grange, Hank Aaron, Arnold Palmer, Larry Bird, Presidents Truman and Eisenhower, Henry Ford, Mother Teresa, Lassie, Rin Tin Tin, Alf and Howdy Doody?
(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.”

"Monuments Men" is a guaranteed tearjerker, especially if you like period and patriotic films...and looking at George Clooney (alias Clark Gable). I'd see it again in a heartbeat!

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
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.
For Valentine's day, I've posted Steel's picture... he was much in demand as a "cast" or "star horse". Besides Uncle Ben, he carried, John Wayne, Randolph Scott, Clark Gable, Joel McCrae, Maureen O'Hara, John Payne and others.. He commanded $50 a day and you had to rent all the stock in the stable..
Since these things supposedly happen in threes, who will be the final long-thought-dead star to pass? Clark Gable? Boris Karloff?

Hollywood just called. They want me to bring the 'English Clark Gable' with me. You free? ;)
Some hotel cabins throughout the country are famous because of who stayed in those cabins. For example, if you’d like to stay in the same log cabin as President Herbert Hoover and actor Clark Gable, that’s possible at a hotel cabin in rural Oregon.
Rhett who? Oh you mean Clark Gable. Still hold a candle for tho. TV drama of long ago in B&W. I know.
My mother's mother was a Gable. Cousin to Clark Gable,(she says).You know Mother's are always right, I hear ! :-)

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 . ...
