kittypackards:

In the book, you tell a delightful tale of an afternoon spent kissing Clark Gable on an MGM soundstage.
That was my screen test! He was very much older than I was, and I could never figure out why he did it. I could never figure out how Mayer talked him into doing a screen test with me. I was 18, and that was awfully young for Clark Gable at the time. I wondered at the time why he was doing it, though he was as sweet as he could be about it. He didn’t learn the lines; he just kissed me five times. But he gave me the answer as he was leaving. It was one of those scenes where you’re all huddled over in a corner of one of these big empty sound-stages, and as he was walking toward that heavy door and they were about to open it, he said to Carole Lombard, who was on his arm—he had brought her to see him do the screen test—he said, “I told you I was going to kiss me a mermaid today.”
