The Incomparable Life Of Clark Gable
The phrase “stranger than fiction” can apply to many larger-than-life figures but Clark Gable, the “King of Hollywood,” utterly eclipses any and all comers. The debonair, much envied leading man engaged in more affairs than all the soap operas, suffered endless personal losses, fought in WWII, and still managed to become the toast of Tinseltown!
Researching his tumultuous life resembles putting together a puzzle on LSD. You finally feel like you’ve figured it out and then a wave of revelations completely distorts the entire picture. From a bisexual playboy living off of multiple sugar mommas to fighting segregation in Hollywood and suffering from incredibly bad breath, Gable lived a truly unique life. His ludicrous behavior perfectly mirrors his most famous line, “Frankly my dear, I don't give a damn.”
