Mr. Wallace Beery
6' 1" (1.85 m)

I like to play with Clark Gable. Folks seem surprised that we see quite a lot of each other outside the studio. .. He's a regular outdoors man and we're interested in the same things, guns and flying and stuff like that. He ain't no faintin' Romeo, the way they try to make him out.
At MGM his public image was carefully crafted by studio publicity chief Howard Strickling
as that of a big lovable slob with a heart of gold. In reality, however, Beery was anything but that. Co-star Jackie Cooper
said that Beery treated him like an unwanted dog the second the cameras stopped.
