Steve McQueen and his first wife, Neile Adams, were offered the chance to star together in this film. McQueen was quoted as saying. "Neile's no Lombard and I'm no Gable." They turned down the offer. Other sources claim the tandem of McQueen and second wife Ali McGraw turned the film down. See more »
Even though Gable is seen in uniform when Lombard's plane crashes, he didn't actually enlist in Army Air Force until six months after her death. 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.
