A biography about the love affair between 1930s Hollywood superstars Clark Gable and Carole Lombard.
James Brolin portrays Clark Gable in this 1976 movie. Many years later, Brolin starred with Clark Gable's son, John Clark Gable, in the 1990 movie "Bad Jim".
Hedda Hopper approaches Gable at a party while Gone With The Wind is in production and, after making a reference to co-star Vivien Leigh, makes Gable promise she'll be invited to watch filming of burning of Atlanta. In reality, burning of Atlanta was first scene of GWTW to be shot and Leigh wasn't even cast at that time.
The theatrical version ends with Gable being driven away from the plane crash site, tearfully recounting a joke Lombard told him earlier in the film to lift his spirits. In the network television broadcast version, the joke is omitted, and it instead ends with a flashback to Lombard giving Gable a pep talk about standing together and fighting for their relationship.
