“The King of Hollywood”
Client Since 2021.
American film actor, William Clark Gable, is often referred to many as “The King of Hollywood” or simply, “The King.” Over the course of his 37 year career, Gable played roles in more than 60 motion pictures across various genres. Gable’s masculine charm and magnetic performances quickly solidified his stature as a cinematic icon. Gable won an Academy Award for his role in Frank Capra’s, “It Happened One Night” (1934), captured audiences in “Mutiny on the Bounty” (1935), and received tremendous success as Rhett Butler in the historical film, “Gone with the Wind” (1939). Indeed, Gable’s iconic delivery of the classical film’s line, “Frankly, my dear, I don’t give a damn,” is one of the most famous quotes in the history of cinema. Among other well known pictures, Gable appeared in films such as “Hell Divers,” “Strange Interlude,” “The Hucksters,” and “Too Hot to Handle.” For this and many of his other accomplishments, Gable has been regarded by the American Film Institute as the seventh greatest male actor of American cinema.
