Clark Gable, King of Hollywood, was a charismatic character who was in real life very much like Rhett Butler. Wayne delves into every aspect of Gable’s life and career, bringing his successes, failures and escapades to the listener. Bailey’s narration is superb. She captures the speech mannerisms, personalities and swaggers of the men and the sophistication and sexuality of the women. Portrait of a Misfit includes descriptions of Gable’s hundred-plus films and num-erous affairs. This biography revives the image of Gable as a magnetic personality in the days when “men were men.” M.B.K. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: NOV/DEC 97]
