Clark 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.
