Clark Gable, in Pictures:

Candid Images of the Actor’s Life

 

 

By Chrystopher J. Spicer

 

About the Book
From the very beginning of Clark Gable’s screen career, the life of the glamorous film star came under the scrutiny of the camera. While audiences are familiar with the public Gable as seen through the studio lens, the private Gable as seen in photos taken by members of the public, friends, and family is much less known.

 

This collection of candid photographs, many of them published here for the first time, has been compiled by biographer Chrystopher J. Spicer from his archives and from sources around the world. As with Spicer’s acclaimed centenary biography Clark Gable (McFarland, 2002), this volume provides rare insight into the life of the man behind the star.

 

REVIEW

“These distinctively personal images are themselves informative, and Spicer provides a richly detailed narrative to accompany them. Delving into each major area of Gables’s life…Spicer presents an impressive amount of information…this is a thoroughly researched work with great visual appeal that illuminates some of the less emphasized aspects of Gable’s life. Spicer’s empathetic and comprehensive portrait will certainly resonate with Gable fans as well as film historians and enthusiasts and will find a permanent place in both popular and special collections”–Library Journal.
