About the Book

The King was first published in 1961, shortly after the death of Hollywood legend Clark Gable in 1960. The book traces Gable’s life from its humble, hard-scrabble beginnings in Ohio, to his hard-work and determined efforts to achieve success on Broadway, to his meteoric rise to stardom in Hollywood, his time spent in the Army Air Force in Europe, and his many loves, including Carole Lombard who was tragically killed in an airplane crash in 1942. The King paints an intimate, contemporary portrait of Clark Gable the man, both on and off camera, and ends with Gable’s work on his last film, The Misfits, and his subsequent decline in health and his death on November 16, 1960, at age 59.
