Oh, listen, Jonny. Everyone's not like you. You'd rather be a good reporter than... Shakespeare.
Jonathon 'Jonny' Davis:
Shakespeare was a reporter. Scooped Queen Elizabeth. That's the thing to do with dames. Scoop 'em, but stay away from all of them.

Had the opportunity to view this film on TV, which was shown in the early AM hours and found it very interesting for a WWII. Clark Gable gave a great performance, despite the fact, that in real life he lost the soul mate of his life and managed to show his great ability as an actor in playing the part of Lana Turner's lover. This was sort of a pick me up for audiences during the war years and having two men after one woman was a different twist. Robert Sterling gave a great supporting role as a guy who was also in love with poor Lana Turner and managed to hold his own against Clark Gable. This is truly a great 1942 Classic and a great picture with Turner & Gable at their very best. Enjoy.
