  1. Interesting about Clark Gable when you look at some facts. After his wife, Carol Lombard was killed in a plane crash he went to war. He then helped in filming the b-bombers completing five missions his self. So why would a man who was one of the highest paid go to war?

    Just learned that had to share!
