no, but the fact that the undershirt sales dropped so much that year because of this one guy in this one movie decided not to wear one.

Clark was supposed to cry in the scene after the death of his daughter. It worried him for days before he was to do the scene as he’d never cried on the screen before. He didn’t think it was masculine for a man to cry. One day he confided in me, “Olivia, I can’t do it. I’m just going to have to quit.” I talked with him and convinced him that the tears denoted strength of character, not weakness. It turned out to be one of the most memorable scenes in the movie. Clark always underrated himself as an actor. I think his Rhett Butler will live forever as one of the screen’s classic performances ~ Olivia De Havilland

"You can trust that little screwball with your life or your hopes or your weaknesses, and she wouldn’t even know how to think about letting you down. She’s more fun than anybody, but she’ll take a poke at you if you have it coming and make you like it. If that adds up to love, then I love her." - Clark Gable

No, I don’t think I will kiss you, although you need kissing, badly. That’s what’s wrong with you. You should be kissed and often, and by someone who knows how.

Clark adored woman- not in a leechy way. He loved beauty. His eyes would sparkle when he saw a beautiful woman, and if he liked you he’d let you know it. He was boyish, mannish and brute- all kinds of goodies. When he grinned, you’d have to melt. If you didn’t want him as a lover, you’d have to give him a bear hug. He affected all females unless they were dead.
