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. 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 »
Gable and Lombard ended up being a real treat for me to watch. I was skeptical about James Brolin playing Clark Gable but it wasn't long into the movie I got lost in Clark Gable and not in James Brolin. Jill Clayburg, I knew she could pull off being the sexy yet foul mouthed Carol Lombard. This movie is quite authentic with little embellishments here and there as I have read just about everything on this love struck couple. You will die laughing when you see what Carole Lombard had knitted for Clark Gable and her cute little comment when she sees it might be too big for him to fit into. I would though recommend not watching it on tv as it was edited so badly it took away from the story lines. If you can find it on video or happen to catch it in your cable guide, please try to catch it and I think if you really give it your undivided attention you will find the greatest love story of this century!
