    1 thought on “Clark Gable: Tormented Star”

    1. Reading David Bret’s homosexual fantasy about Clark Gable is equivalent to listening to a dance hall girl sing a bawdy tune out of key. She bellows like a donkey giving birth whilst suffering her death throes, but the entire spectacle is too unseemly for any civilized person to tolerate, and ultimately the only solution is to drag the fat and blemished queen from the stage, stick a gag in her mouth, and kick her out of town. But let’s examine the facts: The ability to construct a readable se [...]

    2. Remember that icky, half-incredulous feeling you had the first time you realized that mom and dad were doing it? That’s the feeling I had reading David Bret’s book on Clark Gable. It’s possible that what I was reacting to comes out a buried sense of ageism. Clark Gable, in my lifetime, was old enough to be my grandfather.I wasn’t shocked by the revelation of his bi-sexuality. Seventy-five percent of actors, at any given time, have tried same-sex encounters. From my experience in the worl [...]

    3. I decided I can't read anymore of this garbage. After reading about the author I can't find him credible. Actually, this isn't even the book I wanted, but thought "This book can't be that bad", so I still picked it up from the library. Well I was wrong. I couldn't even finish the book.I thought the book had great potential, besides being about CLARK GABLE, the first chapter about his youth was interesting. Coming from a broken home and leaving his father house to be an actor! Things like that ma [...]

    4. David Bret is one of those authors whose careers rely on a single legal fact -- when someone has died, you can't be sued for raking muck about them.And nowhere is this more obvious than "Clark Gable: Tormented Star," a sleazy little tell-all whose ambition is to confidently declare that Clark Gable was a closeted, miserable loser and that every single gay rumor in Hollywood was absolutely true. More than that it's just an ugly, dull book, with a focus on the revolting (body odor, farting, dismem [...]

    5. Well, one certainly can't complain that this isn't a tell-all. I'm not at all sure who David Bret is. From his acknowledgements and the jacket blurb and other clues he seems to be an Englishman of a certain age who was the flamboyant gay (despite references to a "wife" in the acknowledgements) confidante of Joan Crawford and Marlene Dietrich (whom he has both also written biographies of) and many others. He has a penchant for pop-your-curlers bluntness about sexuality and rather comical reaction [...]

    6. If you love Clark Gable, then don't read this book,it just breaks your heart.He was the most charming man on screen. Thousands of girls dreamed about him; thousands of wives wish their hushands were exactly like him. But he lived in a most miserable life off screen, like the subtitle says -- a tormented star.He lost his mother when he was a baby; he lost his wife when he just climbed on the summit of his career; and then he died before his first child was born.He spent very tough rough time at a [...]

    7. This isn't a biography of Clark Gable. This is a fantasy of the author. A black book of who was having sex with who. That's all it is. And if the author is to be believed (which he isn't by me), Everyone was having sex with Everyone. AND Everyone was GAY!!! And not only is everyone gay, but they were all whoring for profit. If I had a hard copy of this book, I'd burn it. I didn't even finish it. I only got 80 pages into this sexual score card of garbage. I will NEVER read another book by this au [...]

    8. This is a book of gossip and rumors that never really give any insight into the man or his work. Some of it is amazingly fun (especially his relationship with Lombard) but the author gets so many detail wrong about specific films and timelines that ultimately it is hard to believe his more outlandish claims (such as the assertion that Gable was a gay rent boy in his younger days). Still, the secret daughter thing is worth the price of admission. If you can find it at a used book store pick it up [...]

    9. not one of the best books on someone who is one of the best. I found some errors, but mostly sex exploits that may or may not be true. The film discography is detailed and worth a read for Gable fans.

    10. Not a great book. a great actor yes, but the writer spends way to much time describing his movies as opposed to his eventful life

    11. A whirlwind of a book, makes me wish I was in Hollywood back in the dayikey a lot of people swapping, high octane stuff
