Clark Gable, in Pictures: Candid Images of the Actor's LifeClark Gable, in Pictures: Candid Images of the Actor’s Life by Chrystopher J. Spicer
My rating: ✰✰✰✰
Hard Cover, ARC, Finished: 5/7/2012

This book is not a biography, as the title states it is a collection of pictures of Clark Gable with a narrative accompanying the pictures. They are arranged in groups, ‘early life’, ‘acting life’, ‘military life’, etc.

Also included are some background material, he talked about the statistics of gunners in the military, also gave a history of the cars that Clark bought and drove.

The pictures are not publicity photos, but mainly snapshots taken in casual moments. There is not a ton of information about Gable career or life, just little tidbits accompanying the pictures, but that is exactly what the author tells in the forward, for this reason I gave it four stars. I thought this was an enjoyable, informative read.

About Belleza

I got the name Bella because my grandfather called me Suzabell. I use that as a username and my friends on the site started calling me Bella. Thus was born: Bella Foxx's Life, now known as "just a city girl" since I have made the big jump from the country and am now living in the City, UES. I like to make jewelry (check out my blog "Bella is creative" started April 17, 2008) and write. I like to do cross stitch and knit. I sew, I don't really enjoy it, but I enjoy the clothes. I like to read the Bible, books, magazines, online newspaper articles, blogs, jokes on candy wrappers, ads on the subway, billboards, backs of food boxes, lists of ingredients and recipes, cleaning directions, sayings on shirts. I post my reviews on "Just a girl, living, reading, watching, and writing", on Shelfari, Library Thing and Goodreads.. I am allergic to practically everything: grass, trees, weeds, animal dander, dust, mold, wheat, apples, nuts, fish and coconut. The fish and coconut are so serious I carry an Epi-pen and wear a Medic-Alert bracelet. And last but not least. I love the Yankees.
