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 »
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 »
Might not be the best movie, but most of the incidents in this film really took place (read the book by Warren G. Harris)! Some of the character's are fictionalized, but the story about the romance is not. James Brolin IS Clark Gable. Brolin has Gable's personality and mannerisms down to a "T" and plays Gable with dignity and grace(unlike Edward Winter did in Moviola:The Scarlett O'Hara War. Winter played him as down home, backwoods, stupid hick, which Gable was FAR from!) I don't know if Brolin did any research for his role but he's sure got Gable down pat!! Jill Clayburgh, on the other hand, overplays her role a bit, but maybe that was the way Lombard really was! All in all, Gable and Lombard is an excellent movie for film buffs, fans of Gable and/or Lombard, or suckers for old fashioned romances. Unfortunately, the only way to see this film is on cable in a heavily edited TV version. Put it out on DVD!!
