Such a suave and charismatic actor he was

wjerryzwjerryzNov 3, 2015

I think Clark,s best movie was Manhattan Melodrama

wjerryzwjerryzNov 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.

MartianAwarenessMartianAwarenessNov 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.

aizamasaizamasJan 9, 2014

Gable tiene algo de elegante bilbaino, es el mejor.

Paris098Nov 11, 2013

I love him so much! He's so cute!

alvis64alvis64Oct 13, 2012
