    Happy Valentine's Day from the Webbs!. This two-page lot from the guest books of Clifton Webb and his mother Mabel opens with a sheet from a Valentine's Day Eve party, February 13, 1934, with a splendid full signature from Clark Gable - just as t Happened One Night, for which he'd win an Academy Award, was going into release. Gable's fellow revellers include Raymond Massey and Gladys Cooper (both of whom who had opened that night in Broadway's The Shining Hour), Helen Hayes (then starring in Broadway's Mary of Scotland), Roland Young (then in the New York play Her Master's Voice), Ina Claire (then in Broadway's Biogrpahy), Judith Anderson and Gable's wife Ria. Clifton Webb himself was then starring in Broadway's As Thousands Cheer. The reverse side (which one of the signers has dated January of 1934) includes Laurence Olivier, Moss Hart, Frank Lawton and John Beal. Sheet two, dated March 21, 1933, features (among others) opera star Laurence Tibbett and playwright George Kaufman. The reverse of this sheet incudes Grace Moore, Beatrice Lillie and composer Vincent Youmans. A wonderful Clark Gable item, with great accompanying signatures. With COA from PSA/DNA.
