Rare Gable-Lombard footage on new YouTube videoPosted by vp19 on 2008.01.29 at 13:33

Seeing a still of Clark Gable and Carole Lombard together, in color, is splendid. But how about some color "home movies" of the famed couple?
Now you have your chance, thanks to The Lombard Archive. Carole Sampeck has assembled some footage of Clark and Carole away from the screen -- some of it filmed at their Encino ranch, some shot during their pheasant hunting trip in South Dakota -- and put it on a YouTube video, with background provided by Matt Munro's version of "My Kind Of Girl." (The footage was shot without sound, as a segment in which they imitate exaggerated silent-movie acting makes evident.)
