Clark Gable’s Amazing Impact

“[Clark Gable] was totally unaware of the impact he had on people. He steered clear of the Hollywood whirl. At the end of a day’s filming, Clark would go to his dressing room and have a drink of Scotch with his make-up man and his stand-in. They would shoot the breeze for a while, then Clark would head home to Encino. That was the only staff he had–those two men. Quite a contrast to Frank Sinatra, who also had a kind of royal status in the entertainment world but only moved behind a phalanx of bodyguards.” ~Doris Day, on the set of TEACHER’S PET, 1958.
