The Clark Gable Blogathon is here!
Dear Mr. Gable, I am writing this to you,
and I hope that you will read it so you'll know
My heart beats like a hammer,
And I stutter and I stammer,
Every time I see you at the picture show.
I guess I'm just another fan of yours,
And I thought I'd write
and tell you so...
<><><> "Dear Mr. Gable / You Made Me Love You" <><><>
Today's the day: my three-day celebration of the legendary Clark Gable has arrived! Join me and a terrific roster of writers as we honor one of the most iconic actors to ever grace the silver screen.
Bloggers, please send me your links as soon as possible and I'll link to them as fast as I can. I'm not a big social media person, so if you could please spread the word about this event, that would be so lovely of you!
And happy 117th birthday to you, Mr. Gable!

A Free Soul (1931).
Mutiny on the Bounty (1935).
Teacher's Pet (1958).
Night Nurse (1931).
Boom Town (1940), an interesting drama will a magnificent cast.
Cain and Mabel (1936).
the pre-Code film and looks at the lovely friendship between Gable and frequent co-star Jean Harlow.

Three Times Clark Gable Proved He Could Act.
Call of the Wild (1935).
