Clark the Hoofer

                                       Idiot's Delight ( 1939)

The best  thing you can take from Mr. Gable's performance as a song and dance man in Idiot's Delight, is that he was a trooper.  I've always thought it an interesting warmup for Gone With the Wind.  Anyway, the movie did produce some great promotional photos.  My copy of the above is 10 x 13, a tad larger than my scanner's capability, explaining the cut-off feet and plumes.  Have had it for a while, but can't decide where to display it.  If it was totally my choice, it would be hanging over the mantel.  Ah, the compromises that make up a good marriage.
