I think Clark,s best movie was Manhattan Melodrama

wjerryzNov 3, 2015

Clark was famous in acting because he was a natural. When given a job his lines just come natural you couldn,t tell he was acting. That's how good he was.

MartianAwarenessNov 22, 2014

Rarely does a screen version of a literary character hit the mark quite Gable did with Rhett Butler. He was a remarkably well rounded actor. A true Hollywood giant.
