For Clark Gable Fans Only

I don't want this great Hollywood incident to be lost, so I decided to put it here.

During a recording session, one of the stars I was directing told me this story that he personally witnessed:

"I was at a small hamburger shop on Hollywood Boulevard . I noticed Clark Gable sitting at the counter eating a hamburger. Suddenly a girl about age 20 walked up to Gable and said;

'Oh, Mister Gable, I just have to tell you that my mother named me Scarlett because of your movie.'

"Gable put down his hamburger, stood up, looked down at the girl and said dramatically;

'There's one thing I do know, I love you, Scarlett. In spite of you, me and the whole silly world going to pieces around us, I love you.'

"And then Gable turned, sat down, picked up his hamburger and resumed eating. The girl walked out of the shop in a daze."
