Fact of the Day: Clark Gable

Clark Gable, an actor best known for his role as Rhett Butler in the film Gone with the Wind joined the Air Force (when it was still part of the U.S. Army) during World War II despite being one of the biggest actors in Hollywood. Gable was ironically Germany's tyrant leader's favorite actor and he promised his soldiers a impressive reward if they were able to bring in Clark Gable unharmed.

That's funny, and it's admirable of Gable. I'm glad he survived the military unharmed.
Happy weekend.
