The Centennial of Clark Gable's Birth
February 1, 2001
Beverly Hills

Mayor Willy Brown of San Francisco stopping in L.A. to enjoy
the electricity and Wolfgang's food at Spago. His tie
matches my grandmother's antique gold neckless from Sweden.

Spago owner Wolfgang Puck stops by the table to say hello.

Posing in front of Gable's Mercedes. I rode in it
with him in 1957.I could still almost smell his cologne.

James Tumblin, organizer of the event and owner of the Shaw-Tumblin Collection in Hawaii. Next to him is the young lady who was the baby in "Gone With the Wind."

Long-time friend, Carol Baker who beat me out for the role of Jean Harlow in the 1960's.

Do these ever bring back memories! Here Clark and I are
relaxing on the set between takes of "Teacher's Pet."

A photo of Marilyn and Clark on the set of "The Misfits," his
last film. I wish she could be here to enjoy this.

On the left is Audrey Totter, one of my favs growing up. I loved her in "Lady in the Lake." She also worked with Clark. She's 83 years young.

Gal-pal Grace Robbins (widow of author Harold Robbins), Carol Baker, and I watch the Clark Gable look-a-like make his entrance.

I felt like Scarlett O'Hara because this young actor looks and sounds SO much like the real King!

It was like being teacher's pet all over again!
Talk about memories! From left: Judy, Gable's daughter by Loretta Young; Marsha Hunt; Carol, Phyllis; and Audrey posing for the French television.

Judy and Marvin Paige. Many of the photos in tonight's exhibit came from Marvin's private collection.

Judy and me. She is an awesome lady, and I'm so happy to have met her. Her father would be proud!

No party would be complete without my best pal, Skip E. Lowe, who poses here with Carol Baker.

Good night, everybody!
