Who designed Hollywood homes for Frank Sinatra, Barbara Stanwyck, Tyrone Power, Lon Chaney, Clark Gable, Lucille Ball & Desi Arnaz, Groucho Marx, and Cary Grant among others? Paul Revere Williams, dubbed “architect to the stars.” Recent dwellers in his prized elegant yet family oriented homes, most with signature staircases, include Denzel & Pauletta Washington, Andy Garcia, Paul McCartney, and Ellen Degeneres. Born in 1894, he opened his office in 1922 having deliberately mastered drawing upside down so race challenged clients could sit opposite him if they found his close presence too uncomfortable. He couldn't live where he built, but he didn't care. With an arsenal of architectural styles including American Colonial, Spanish Mediterranean, English Tudor, French Normandy, Art Deco, and his own brand of California ranch, he knew his worth and enjoyed being the first African-American member and fellow in the exclusive American Institute of Architects organization, as well as expressing his deep c ...

THOUGHTS FROM AN AGING PIZZA EVANGELIST SEEN ANY GOOD MOVIES LATELY? Bob Fettes / Columnist Published: January 4, 2015 8:00AM Gone are the great movies and the great movie stars. Never again will we see the likes of a Clark Gable, Jimmy Stewart, Humphrey Bogart, Gary Cooper, Audrey Hepburn, Bettie Davis, Grace Kelly, or the like. Gone are classics like "High Noon, "Casablanca," "African Queen," "Gone With The Wind" and "Treasure of the Sierra Madre." Sadly, we will never see their likes again … or will we? People ask me if I've seen any good movies lately, and I jokingly reply, "The last good movie I saw was Quo Vadis in 1951." That isn't entirely true. I have seen a few good movies since the 1950s and I would like to take time in my column to tell you about one such movie. The title is "The Great Debaters." It premiered in 2007 directed by Denzel Washington and produced by Oprah Winfrey. It stars Academy Award winners Denzel Washington and Forrest Whitaker, two of the best Hollywood actors today. Based ...

Comments made in the year 1955! 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. They even have some fe ...

A Free Soul is a 1931 Pre-Code starring the alluring Norma Shearer; Lionel Barrymore, Clark Gable and Leslie Howard. Shearer's character is a good girl from a moneyed family who falls for the considerable charms and exciting lifestyle of a handsome mobster, Clark Gable, but makes a pact with her alcoholic defence attorney father, Lionel Barrymore, to never see Gable again if he can give up the demon drink. One of my favorite lines, from Shearer to Gable, "oh dear, you want to talk some more?" She had a productive career in the silent screen and carried it into the talkies, right up until her retirement in 1942.

"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 ...

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 ...

Jean Harlow- Real name ( Harlean Harlow Carpenter) born on 03-03-1911and passed away from Uremic Poisoning on 06-07-1937 at the age of 26. Jean was well known actress in the 1930's and famous for starring with Clark Gable.
Warren's Star-Dust Inn on Route 1 in Kittery, Maine ~ Warren Wurm owner ~ the Dine and Dance Hall burnt down on May 16, 1951, 2 days before it was to be sold for $150,000. It was said to have been frequented by many Hollywood stars such as George Burns, Clark Gable, Jimmy Durante, Myrna Loy and more. $150,000 … That was a boat load of money for back then. I would say this photo was probably taken in the 40’s. Any guesses where it use to be on Route 1?

When it comes to sexy actors, today we have the likes of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie. But a lot of classic, old Hollywood actors had -- in our humble opinion -- more sex appeal. Actors like Sophia Loren and Montgomery Clift and Clark Gable and Lana Turner. Who do YOU think was the hottest actor of yesteryear???

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.

THE NEW LIST of DISCOVERED & DISCOVERING DADS - Many of us in the adoption community have been on quests that uncovered our other fathers. I started a list when I was researching the novel Tapioca Fire and later posted it online. 30 people tagged here gave their two cents and that made it better as we hashed out what we meant: adoption, illegitimacy, reunion or acknowledgment, or denial and loss.

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.
Chef Paul went to Goldies Restaurant for breakfast yesterday and met a WWII veteran. Chef Paul and this gentleman both served in the Air Force. Ready for this?

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."
" 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.

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 ...
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 ...
