Description

Kodachrome photograph of Clark Gable (1901-1960) taken on a visit to the Kodak factory at Harrow, Middlesex, by JCA Redhead (1886-1954) during World War Two. This portrait of the American film star, sometimes referred to as the 'King of Hollywood', shows Gable in United States Air Force uniform. Although not eligible for the draft because of his mature age, Gable still enlisted, rising to the rank of Captain. In 1944, Gable - requesting to be relieved of duty because he would never be considered for combat - returned to Hollywood and the film industry. Gable's film career stretched from his debut 'The Painted Desert' (1932) to his last film, 'The Misfits' (1960) with Marilyn Monroe. He won an Oscar for his role in 'It Happened One Night' (1934). He is best known for starring as Rhett Butler in 'Gone With The Wind' (1939).
