What a Creep: Clark Gable (Season 5, Episode 3)

 

What a Creep 

Season 5, Episode 3

Clark Gable

With his big ears and a thin mustache, Clark Gable is one of the most recognizable movie stars in the world. From “It Happened One Night” and “Gone with the Wind” to “Mutiny on the Bounty” and “The Misfits,” Gable acted in 60 movies over 37 years.

He’s also a womanizing creep who cheated on every woman he was in a relationship with and reportedly raped one of his co-stars.
