A few years ago--encouraged by a VOSB (Vile Old Shitbag) now happily deceased--Clark Gable's illegitimate daughter--also happily deceased--got in touch to say that she was "horrified" by revelations that early on in his career, Gable was gay-for-pay. The quote had not been invented by me, as VOSB #1 proclaimed, but quoted by Joan Crawford, who was told of the occasion when Gable had "bottomed" for cash in a Beverly Hills Hotel mensroom.
Judy Lewis really got those Jumbo ears in a flap. I was called all the names under the sun--even the word "bastard" came into her spiel, which was of course the pot calling the kettle black. Gable was a lovely man, quoth she, and she had adored him. Hells bells--she never even knew he was her father until she was about to get married!
Now we have another Lewis who loved Gable enough to sell a story that he actually RAPED Loretta Young. Utter tripe! Why has this not been told before? And will Jumbo Ears come flapping down from heaven like a mad wet hen to criticise her fantasising relative who now suggests that Judy was conceived via date-rape?
I didn't like the lady, and thought it very inconsiderate of her--spiteful, in fact--to die on Joey Stefano's anniversary. But to say that her mother was raped. That's snakes belly low and whoever made up this story should hold their head in shame. Gable and Loretta had a passionate affair, and it was cold where they were filming "Call of the Wild". They had to do SOMETHING to keep warm!
Gable raped NOBODY. He didn't need to resort to such tactics. He could have anybody he wanted with one flash of that handsome smile--male or female.
Clark Gable Accused Of Raping Co-Star
July 13, 2015
Hollywood legend Loretta Young was ‘date raped’ by Clark Cable, according to a sensational interview with her daughter-in-law Linda Lewis.
It was a well-known Hollywood scandal that actress Young, who died in 2000, had a secret baby with Gable that was conceived during the shoot of their film ‘The Call Of The Wild’ in 1935 (see the poster below).
Young went to great lengths to cover up her illegitimate daughter Judy, though details of the liaison emerged before her death.
However this is the first time that Gable has been accused of raping Young.
In an interview with Buzzfeed, Lewis said that her mother-in-law liked to watch ‘Larry King Live’. During a segment on date rape, she asked her to explain what the term meant.
“I did the best I could to make her understand,” Lewis said. “You have to remember, this was a very proper lady.”
When Lewis finished Young said: “That’s what happened between me and Clark.”
Apparently the family decided to keep quiet about the allegations to protect Judy, but decided to go public when she died, aged 78, in 2011.
“Six months later, something went click,” Linda said. “Judy is not here to be hurt by this. And that’s what Loretta really wanted to avoid — because who doesn’t want to be conceived in love?”
“But then I realized that it’s almost every day, all these rapes, and the men just keep getting away with it.”
Lewis said she was conflicted about going public with the story. She said: “When you’re the keeper of this information, it’s a terrifying story to tell for the first time.
“It’s so dramatic. The onus is on us to prove it, but you can’t prove it. It’s ‘he said, she said.’ But that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t tell the story.”
