Character and charisma sums up Clark Gable
11 August 2001 | by lora64See all my reviews

Most of us know a great deal about Clark Gable but it's a pleasure to have so much material on his life and career all in one showing. Here one sees many short clips from his movies and I've made a note of several to follow up for future viewing.

Liam Neeson narrates this summary of the famous actor's life, showing us the indoor and outdoor setting of the home Clark shared with wife Carole Lombard, and many mementos therein. I only wished the narration had lasted longer as there's so much more to know!

Gable isn't my kind of dreamboat but I've always enjoyed his honest and forthright acting qualities, with few pretensions. In comedy his early lighthearted roles revealed a delightful sense of humor, yet he could also carry dramatic roles with great success. All these are too numerous to list so let the reader do some pleasant exploring to discover more for themselves.
