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 »
When Gable drives onto the Paramount lot to talk to Lombard about starring in "No Man Of Her Own" (released in 1932), a billboard outside her dressing room advertises "The Princess Comes Across" - a Lombard picture not produced until four years later. See more »
The theatrical version ends with Gable being driven away from the plane crash site, tearfully recounting a joke Lombard told him earlier in the film to lift his spirits. In the network television broadcast version, the joke is omitted, and it instead ends with a flashback to Lombard giving Gable a pep talk about standing together and fighting for their relationship.

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!
