Oscar Snubs – GABLE

OSCAR SNUB ( CLARK GABLE - GONE WITH THE WIND )

GABLE in “GONE WITH THE WIND” ( 1939 )

Because he’s Gable, whaddya kiddin’ me?! No one in Hollywood could have played the role of Rhett Butler. Roué, devil-may-care, he’s still in love with a woman who’s not in love with him and tries to mask his hurt. Of course the scene where he’s lost his daughter is a deal breaker. I don’t count It Happened One Night.” Vivien Leigh was masterful. And Gable was right there with her. You wuz robbed Gable. Robbed! And Im here to tell you: it aint fittin!!
