- Clark Gable - RHETT BUTLER IN GONE WITH THE WIND Movie Star from the past. He is often considered the most romantic, charismatic male character ever in films. His chemistry with the fiery Vivien Leigh was infallible. No actor and role were ever so perfectly wed as Clark Gable and Rhett Butler. R.I.P.
When I was very young, Clark Gable as Rhett Butler ('Gone With The Wind,' 1939) was my first 'celeb' crush (he was deceased at the time). Here he watches as Scarlett drives off to her lumber mill via Shantytown - alone.
