LOS ANGELES (Reuters) – Authorities on Thursday were investigating the death of the girlfriend of Clark Gable’s son after she was found dead one day earlier in the Malibu, California home the couple shared.


The Los Angeles County Coroner’s office said no foul play was suspected in the death Christiane Candice Lange, 41.


Officials said John Clark Gable, the son of the “Gone With the Wind” screen legend Clark Gable, was unable to rouse Lange after she had complained of feeling unwell the night before and going to sleep. According to her website, Lange worked as a make-up artist and hair extension specialist.


An autopsy will be carried out but coroner’s officials said she may have died of natural causes or from prescription drugs. Police are also investigating.


John Clark Gable, is the only son of the film star, and he was born to Gable’s fifth wife, Kay Williams, shortly after the actor’s death in 1960.


Gable, an off-road car racer, had some small acting roles in the 1990s but keeps a low-profile in Hollywood.

Miriam Hopkins on moving to Hollywood



“I didn’t want to go to Hollywood. I had no desire to go. But I was under contract. And when I signed a two-year contract with Paramount, through Walter Wanger, he said: ‘You won’t have to go because I have the studio, you’ll make any films here (New York), you know.’ But they decided to close the Astoria studio. So with the equipment, the cameras, the electrical light bulbs and so forth, I was shipped to California. I had to go.”

Nita Naldi comments on her film persona




“The fans just assumed that I was in real life as I appeared on the screen. Women loathed me; I was warned not to appear on the public beaches, and everywhere I went people used to look upon me as something unreal — like griffins and unicorns. But time changed that. Women don’t seem to hate me any more.” — Nita Naldi (1897-1961)
