Gable memorabilia

Just a reminder that we are still looking for rare Gable snapshots, documents, and other related memorabilia for use in the documentary and book. If you own anything that Gable once owned himself, then that is absolutely wonderful too.

Just drop me a line at Michelle[at]MichelleMorgan[dot]co[dot]uk. (Sorry about the coded email - it is in the hope of preventing spam!)

Thank you very much indeed. And please feel free to pass along my email to anyone you feel may be able to help with this project.

Jean Harlow Blogathon

I am very proud to be taking part in the Jean Harlow Blogathon, which is taking place this week to celebrate what would have been her 100th birthday.

The Blogathon consists of many bloggers and fans coming together to celebrate Jean and full details can be found here:

Jean was Gable's co-star on many occasions and when she passed away Gable was too upset to even give a statement to the press. It has been said that his wife, Carole Lombard, told Clark that if she died, he was to make sure her funeral didn't turn into the 'spectacle' that she felt Jean's was. When Carole did pass several years later, her husband made sure that it was the quiet, respectful funeral she had wanted.

Over the years there have been various books written about Jean Harlow. Some good, some bad. In my opinion the best so far has been David Stenn's 'Bombshell' which I was able to purchase while on holiday in Santa Monica in 1995. It was my last day and I wasn't sure whether to buy the book or not, but I am so glad I did. Stenn's work is amazing and although 'Bombshell' is now very hard to find, several websites are offering it for sale, including Amazon:

Later this month a new book will be published entitled 'Harlow In Hollywood'. The book, written by Darrell Rooney and Mark Vieira is published by Angel City Press and promises to be not only a good read but stunning to look at too.

The authors will be promoting their work in various places over the coming weeks and months, including an event at the Egyptian Theater in Hollywood, this weekend. Details are as follows:


Sun, 6 March, 14:00 – 17:00
Egyptian Theater, 6712 Hollywood Blvd., Los Angeles CA 90028

The event will include a showing of the film 'Bombshell', a book signing and Jean Harlow slideshow. For more details on the event and the book, please go to

RIP Jane Russell

I was so sad to wake up to the news of Jane Russell's passing. We had hoped to interview her for the Clark Gable project but alas it wasn't meant to be. She will be very much missed.

God bless you Jane - you were one in a million.
