Storyline

Burgess Meredith narrates this insightful MGM-produced documentary about the life and career of Hollywood legend Clark Gable, from his childhood in Ohio, to his star status in Hollywood, and to his romantic life off-screen, including his marriage to Carole Lombard. The film incorporates classic film footage of Gable with interviews of people from his past, including an old classmate from his school days, a former sweetheart, and his press agent. Another treat is the rare home movie footage of Gable and Lombard on a camping trip. Written by FelixtheCat

A huge disappointment
20 December 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This documentary was a huge disappointment. It's a completely sanitized version of Gable's life.

While I found the details on his early years very interesting, I was disappointed that many details of his later life were completely left out.

The only women mentioned in this show are his wives. Gable was a legendary womanizer (most notably: he had a child with Loretta Young), but no mention was made of any of these relationships. Also left out was the alleged suicide attempt after the death of Carole Lombard.

I prefer profiles of old Hollywood stars to include all of their lives: warts and all. I hope that one day someone makes this kind of show about Clark Gable.
