Shown on the H. M. S. Bounty, in his Oscar-nominated role as Fletcher Christian.
Photograph inscribed and signed: "To Pam/Kindest Regards/Always/Clark Gable". B/w with sepia hue, 8x10. Gable is in a scene from Mutiny on the Bounty (1935), for which he received an Oscar nomination for Best Supporting Actor for the role of Fletcher Christian, First Mate of the H.M.S. Bounty. Clark Gable (1901-1960) won his only Academy Award for Best Actor in 1934 for his role opposite Claudette Colbert in It Happened One Night. His other memorable roles included his Oscar-nominated performances as Fletcher Christian in Mutiny on the Bounty (1935, as shown here) and Rhett Butler in Gone With the Wind (1939), which resulted in Gable being named "The King of Hollywood" (a term he disliked). He was cast opposite the biggest stars of the era, including Joan Crawford 8 times, Myrna Loy 7, and Jean Harlow 6. Among his noteworthy Gable performances included Red Dust (1932), which gave his career an early boost; and Run Silent, Run Deep (1955), which revived it somewhat when his popularity had waned somewhat. 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, actress Carole Lombard, was killed in a plane crash in 1942). Gable was always a womanizer, but Lombard - the third of his five wives - was the love of his life, and he was devastated when she died. He also had an enduring friendship and intermittent love affair with Joan Crawford, and a daughter by Loretta Young (the paternity acknowledged publicly by neither during their lifetimes). 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. Ink faded on inscription. The "C" and "G" a bit light but completely legible. Horizontal crease at lower edge. Overall, fine condition.
