About the Book

The 1930s represented the strongest and most significant decade in Clark Gable’s career. Later known as The King of Hollywood, Gable started out as a journeyman actor who quickly rose to the level of star, and then icon. With his ruggedly attractive looks and effortless charisma, Gable was the sort of manly romantic lead that bolstered features alongside the likes of Jean Harlow, Joan Crawford, and Spencer Tracy.The decade culminated with Gable’s most noted movie, Gone With the Wind.This book traces Gable’s early career, film-by-film, offering background information and a critical assessment of each of his movies released during the 1930s.
