Clark Gable is not returning to work in September. He says he may never make another picture, which would be a terrible blow, not only to his studio, but to all his many fans.

Said Clark: “I saw so much death and suffering overseas that the movies will never appeal to me again, unless I can do something off the beaten path; something that is not conventional, but is important and significant. Otherwise, I don’t want to return to the screen. I don’t need the money. I’m not rich but I can live on my very little ranch and be happy.”

MGM already has announced “Lucky Baldwin” and several other pictures for Clark. (As we know, “Lucky Baldwin” was never made.)

LEO: With vibrations favorable, the Sun your ruling planet and your keyword POWER — there should be plenty of useful “fireworks,” if you are living up to the true Leo-born.
