Clark Gable
“Frankly my dear, I don’t give a damn”
Yeh, well neither do I…

Annoyingly my enjoyment of “It Happened One Night” was increasingly marred by the fact that Clark’s slicked back hairdo became all floppy fronted as the “night” wore on. This reminded me way too much of the chaw-bacon’s charming hairdo. If the kilted one were to be given a proper pseudonym in this blog it would definitely have to be Clark Gable – the big choccie.

I decided to watch the film in the afternoon prior to rustling up a recipe each in tribute to the co-stars. Rita’s daughter Elizabeth bunked off her dissertation writing to watch the movie with me. A very well behaved film watcher – not a peep from her until the film was over. That was despite my squealing when Errol spat over his shoulder and got some on his jacket, “what was THAT all about?”

Later I rustled up Gable’s Stuffed Pork Tenderloins which were a great hit with Elizabeth and her beau – the lovely Richard Burton. He proclaimed them to be “really super”. Which is more than could be said of Claudette Colbert’s Caramel Custard.
