Clark Gable (1901-1960), born William Clark Gable, won his only Academy Award for Best Actor in 1934 for his role as newspaper reporter Peter Warne in It Happened One Night. His other memorable roles included his Oscar-nominated performances as Fletcher Christian in Mutiny on the Bounty (1935) and Rhett Butler in Gone With the Wind (1939), which resulted in Gable being named "The King of Hollywood". In the 1940s, Gable appeared in 15 films, including documentaries he made during his service in WWII (he joined Army Air Corps, where he served as a tail gunner, after his third wife, Carole Lombard, was killed in a plane crash in 1942). Gable was said to be the favorite actor of Adolf Hitler, who offered a reward for his capture - alive. Gable died on November 16, 1960 at age 59 just two days after the completion of his final film, The Misfits (released in 1961), in which he gave what critics consider one of his best performances.
