Five by Gable: A Pictorial Tribute to Clark Gable

I have been bingeing on Clark Gable films lately.  I have always said that Cary Grant is the most charming actor in film history, but I now have to say that Gable comes a close second.

Here are screen captures from five Gable films produced between 1932 and 1958.

No Man of Her Own (1932)

M-G-M loaned Gable to Paramount, which allowed him to make his only film with future wife Carole Lombard.


Comrade X (1940)

This spy comedy, which shamelessly copied Ninotchka, paired Gable with Hedy Lamarr.


They Met in Bombay (1941)

Rosalind Russell said: "The only man who could make a love scene comfortable was Clark Gable. He was born graceful, he knew what to do with his feet and when he took hold of you, there was no fooling around."


Key to the City (1950)

Two small town mayors (Gable and Loretta Young) fall in love while attending a convention of mayors in San Francisco.


Teacher's Pet (1958)

Gable's incessant mugging in this film is great.
