Clark Gable
His ears make him look like a taxicab with both doors open.
(Howard Hughes)
Actor, Parnell (1937)
Not even mutton chop whiskers and a turret-top collar can make Clark Gable look, sound or act like the uncrowned King of Ireland.
Parnell? No! Clark Gable, in his worst miscasting. He looks like a steel-union organizer gone Park Avenue and walks through his part with the heavy tread of the Golem. Nor is Myrna Loy any help to him, for she is equally stodgy and unbending.
(Rob Wagner, Rob Wagner’s Script)
If Parnell was as woozy a goof as Gable portrayed him in that picture, Ireland still wouldn’t be free.
(Carole Lombard, Gable’s real-life wife)
Actor, Teachers Pet (1958)
Mr Gable looks and sounds a little too much like President Eisenhower.
(Hollis Alpert, Saturday Review)
