Trivia

Clark Gable was indeed sued in a paternity suit and he did wind up in the courtroom. However, Carole Lombard did not come to Gable's defense. Gable was able to prove he was not in England where the conception was said to have taken place and the woman was sent to a year in jail for slandering his name. See more »

Goofs

When Gable drives onto the Paramount lot to talk to Lombard about starring in "No Man Of Her Own" (released in 1932), a billboard outside her dressing room advertises "The Princess Comes Across" - a Lombard picture not produced until four years later. See more »

Brolin is amazing in this film!
9 September 1999 | by (Manila, Philippines) – See all my reviews

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.
