Major Clark Gable
6' 1" (1.85 m)
Did You Know?
This "King" stuff is pure bullshit. I eat and sleep and go to the bathroom just like everybody else. There's no special light that shines inside me and makes me a star. I'm just a lucky slob from Ohio. I happened to be in the right place at the right time, and I had a lot of smart guys helping me--that's all.
Despite his rising popularity, Gable balked at playing gangsters and overtly callous characters, and was therefore very pleased to be cast in Red Dust
(1932), the film that set the seal on his stardom.
Often played a virile, lovable rogue whose gruff facade only thinly masked a natural charm and goodness.
