Clark Gable’s Undershirt–or Lack Thereof


Thanks go to Sarah Uthoff for sharing this fun piece about how Clark Gable destroyed the men’s undershirt industry when he took off his shirt in It Happened One Night (1934) to reveal a bare chest. I remember hearing that from my grandmother back in the 1960s . . .

P.S. If you haven’t seen It Happened One Night, make a point to do so. It has several famous scenes you’ve probably come across before without realizing the context–like the one where Claudette Colbert is hitch-hiking. 

One Response to Clark Gable’s Undershirt–or Lack Thereof

  1. I have a copy of this movie and have watched it numerous times. My mom thought Clark Gable was handsome, but I’m not a fan. He is very likable in this movie, though, and Claudette Colbert is fabulous. Everyone should see this movie as it’s a classic now.
