Description

    Clark Gable Telegrams, 1930-35. A fascinating lot of 23 telegrams sent to Clark Gable between the pivotal years of 1930 to 1935. The telegrams range from a May 1930 message advising him he had won the role of Killer Mears in the West Coast company of The Last Mile (which led to Gable's film stardom) to a February 1935 telegram congratulating him on his Academy Award for It Happened One Night. In-between telegrams include such content as an invitation to select the beauties for the 1932 Gumbo Annual of Louisiana State University, a Happy Birthday 1932 message from actor Wallace Ford, and a 1931 Merry Christmas greetings from Joan Crawford. Fair to Very Good condition.
