“Clark Gable asked me to serve in the Screen Actors Division of the Hollywood Victory Committee, coordinating talent for hospital tours, bond rallies, and camp shows, Clark chaired our division of fifteen, and at the first meeting, December 22, 1941, Carole was first to stand and pledge proud support to her husband. No one could have imagined that three weeks later, returning from a bond-selling rally, Carole would die in a plane crash. Bill Powell, her first husband, Spence, and I were Clark´s only fellow Metro actors invited to the small private funeral. Clark beyond consolation would only talk to Fieldsie, Carole´s great friend and manager, Madalynne Fields. He wouldn´t talk to anyone else, no matter who it was.
