Somewhere I'll Find You

This 1942 MGM film was Clark Gable's last before his enlistment. A standard-issue Hollywood love drama with the War as backdrop, Somewhere I'll Find You is notable for pairing Gable again with rising star Lana Turner. During the filming Gable's wife comic actress Carole Lombard died in an airplane crash. Gable was distraught. That August, still unhappy, he enlisted as an Air Force private. The cameras clicked as Gable shaved off his trademark mustache with the observation "I'll probably be cooler anyway." Gable's next picture would be after the War was over.
