A Tribute to Hair, Makeup & the Publicity Department
Fans of 1930s-1940s films HAVE TO see Clark Gable in this film. Before his studio handlers figured out how to make him a stud, he was unmemorable and frankly not all that handsome. Weak chin and all that. In this film, the camera seldom shoots him straight on.

Just three years later, Gable would star with Claudette Colbert in IT HAPPENED ONE NIGHT and rock the hearts of female fans everywhere. And then in 1939 there was ,,, ,,, GONE WITH THE WIND.

The other User Reviews here for LAUGHING SINNERS a/k/a COMPLETE SURRENDER are more than sufficient; no need to repeat what they've already said. My hope is that you'll watch this as the BEFORE photo of Gable, and then see what the backstage experts of Hair, Make-up Studio Publicity were able to do with this (almost) sallow-faced young man -- to create the AFTER Gable that was to come. No wonder they hand out Oscars for the Great Ones in categories beyond just Best Film, Actor and Director.
