A thorough look at the King of Hollywood
1 August 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I'm a huge fan of Clark Gable and the only other documentary I've seen about him was simply awful. I'm happy to say that this documentary was much, much better.

There are a lot of clips in this program, but there's also a lot of information about him. I actually learned something new (that he and Grace Kelly had a fling) and saw some footage that I'd never seen before.

I especially enjoyed the interviews with Gable's children. Neither of them knew him and their sense of loss is heartbreaking. I can't say that I 'enjoyed' the footage of Gable's funeral, but I had never seen it before so I found it interesting. One of the most striking things I learned in this documentary is that Gable's widow had him buried next to Carole Lombard. Wow. Now that's an understanding woman.

Is this the definitive story of Clark Gable? No.

However, this documentary is very well done and it tells both the good and the-not-so-good about him. There are also a lot of film clips (from both his well known and not so well known roles) to satisfy both the Gable fan and those who are just beginning to know him.
