Gable Biographies
1-3-2008, Happy New Year! There has been quite a few books written about Clark Gable. After Warren Harris's Clark Gable: A Biography (2005), David Bret's Clark Gable: Tormented Star (2007) is the latest one. I have not read it personally. It seems that it hasn't gotten favorable Amazon reviews. My favorite has always been Lyn Tornabene's Long live The King: A Biography of Clark Gable (1976) and a very well-research piece by Chrystopher J. Spicer - Clark Gable: Biography, Filmography, Bibliography (2002). Mr. Spicer was a professor from Australia, and met his wife in the Library while researching for the Gable book. Pretty interesting tale.
