About the Book

Bibliographic Details

Title: Inscribed Photograph Signed.

Binding: Soft cover

Signed: Signed by Author(s)


Clark Gable's last wife, the mother of his only legitimate (and posthumous) son, John Clark Gable, was a thrice-married former fashion model and bit part actress; a year after his death in 1960 she published a memoir, "Clark Gable: A Personal Portrait." Color IPS (magazine), 7" X 9½", n.p., 1961 [August 11]. Very good. Discreet scotch tape stains at two corners. Attractive color magazine portrait depicting Gable's widow in turquoise dress and matching headband seated in an oversize white wicker chair, holding the son born a few month's after her husband's death -- baby Gable holds both hands up as if in shock and has an expression of amazement on his face. She inscribes this in a thick fountain pen almost the same color as her turquoise outfit: "To Donald Burnell / Luck and happiness, / From / John Clark Gable and his Mother / Age 2 weeks 1961." Quite unusual in this form!. Bookseller Inventory # 18270
