... you can learn from:
Mutiny on the Bounty (1935)
Christian: He doesn't punish men for discipline.He likes to see men crawl.
Clark Gable (who was born on this day in 1901) is talking about Charles Laughton's character there, and of course he is. Everybody knew (including his wife!) how Charles Laughton liked to watch men crawl - especially men who looked like Clark Gable. And who could blamed him?
there is supposedly a scene in this movie involving a banana that takes all this gayness that extra mile but I couldn't find that clip. But here's plenty:
Oh and it's well known that Gable was fucking Tone's wife (a little lady named Joan Crawford) off and on for a very long time, including this period here -- given the vibe these two are giving off here I honestly wouldn't be surprised if Joan had the both of them at once. I usually side with Bette Davis in the "Bette vs Joan" feud because Bette Davis was just a more talented actress (I'm not calling Joan a bad actress, she did some stellar work, but Bette was pretty much always amazing) but when it comes down to impressive sluttiness Joan takes the cake, and I tip my hat to her.
