a style Clark Gable would have admired

guys... i may be a little late in the game, but yesterday i fell in love with Clark Gable.

do you think i still have a chance?

in my History of Motion Picture class, we had a viewing of It Happened One Night.
he played an out-of-work newspaper journalist who accidentally falls in love with a runaway heiress.
he depicted this perfect balance between rugged masculinity and adorable helplessness.
and now i want him.

this brings a whole new appreciation for this song:

i've obviously seen Gable before in Gone with the Wind, but Rhett Butler didn't really capture me.
his character, Peter, in It Happened One Night, was much more charming.
maybe it has everything to do with the name ;)
