Hedda Hopper approaches Gable at a party while Gone With The Wind is in production and, after making a reference to co-star Vivien Leigh, makes Gable promise she'll be invited to watch filming of burning of Atlanta. In reality, burning of Atlanta was first scene of GWTW to be shot and Leigh wasn't even cast at that time. See more »
At first, I could not believe James Brolin was playing Clark Gable, but he is dead on with his portrayal!!! He's a great reason to see this film. I don't know why this film is rated so low. It was sweet, entertaining and the ending was heartbreaking. It was also great to see the implications of not being a "moral" and "upstanding" actor in the film industry during its early years. It shows how much times have changed. It was also fascinating to see if Clark Gable really had a softer side in him, since he was probably the greatest leading man in the history of Hollywood and a symbol of American manhood during his time. In my mind, this film is wonderful.
