Clark Gable's last picture before he was released from his MGM contract in March 1954. He first signed with the studio in 1930 (he'd first appeared at the studio as an extra in The Merry Widow (1925)). By the early 1950s most of his films were unsuccessful at the box office and MGM found it difficult to justify his $500,000 per year salary. Gable too was anxious to enter into far more lucrative percentage deals and would do so exclusively for the remaining 6 years of his life.
