Clark Gable (1.2.1901-16.11.1960) advanced as a charming rowdy, who knew how to beguile woman with his arrogance, to one of the greatest Hollywood stars in the first generation. Between 1930 and 1940 he made more than 40 of his overall approx. 80 films. In 1939 he played the role which granted him big fame: Rhett Butler in Gone with the Wind. In the Second World War he served in the 8th bomber squadron as an aerial gunner in a B-17. After the war he resumed his film career. In 1955 he got married for the 5th time. His last and very successful film was The Misfits. After a number of nominations he won an Oscar in 1935 and The Golden Globe 1959. The American Film Institute elected him on rank 7 for the list of the “25 greatest male film legends of all times”. He was also given a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. It is the 50th anniversary of Clark Gable’s death on November 16, 2010.
About Hollywood Legends.
Despite obscurity and lack of funds, Bruno Bernard (1912-1987) set up his first darkroom in the basement of his Hollywood apartment in 1940. Shortly thereafter, he moved his studio to the famous Sunset Strip. “No one knew the name Bernard, but they all knew Hollywood“, and hence the optical trademark signature Bernard of Hollywood, which ensured the image of glamour visually for decades, was created.
Bruno Bernard was considered as “The king of Hollywood glamour” and Marilyn Monroe’s discoverer. In 1984 Bernard was the first still photographer to be honoured with an Oscar at the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.
