Bob and Constance in Moulin Rouge

                                    Moulin Rouge (1934)

Well, according to a November, 1933 issue of Picture Show Magazine, Bob was scheduled for a loan-out to 20th Century to co-star with Constance Bennett in the musical Moulin Rouge.  A few days before filming was scheduled to begin, Bob was called back to MGM to co-star with Clark Gable in a project titled Two Thieves.  Wonder what happened to that one ... I can see Bob and Clark as a couple of thieves.  They do get together a year later in Forsaking All Others.  Meanwhile, Bob ends up filming Fugitive Lovers and Clark goes on to It Happened One Night.  I'd have to say Clark ended up with the best deal that time.
