Clark Gable was “The King” of Hollywood in his heyday, and why not? He carried himself in his movies as though entitled by royal birthright, erect and cocky, not especially curious about the rest of the world because he already owned it.
Sure, Gable’s characters frequently had to be humbled, but that’s not what you remember about him; what you remember is the utter self-confidence, the brash American energy, and–sure–the jug ears. Clark Gable: The Signature Collection is not just a topnotch collection of the King in his court, it’s also a look at just how good the Hollywood studio system (in this case, MGM) was in its glory years.
