Gable's father is John Clark Gable, who was born after Clark Gable's death.

Clark Gable starred in countless Hollywood classics, including Gone With The Wind, It Happened One Night, the original Mutiny on the Bounty, San Francisco, The Misfits and Run Silent, Run Deep. He died in 1960, before the release of The Misfits, from an arterial blood clot after suffering a heart attack at 59.
