a horrible affront to the memory of two great stars.
Oh, I so wanted to like this movie about my favorite Hollywood couple. Brolin does a good impersonation of Gable, but lacks his charisma. Clayburgh was just so wrong for the role of Lombard, that I don't even know where to begin; so I won't. This was supposed to be a story about one of the greatest love affairs, and it fails to do it justice. The biggest disappointment lies in the storytelling itself. Something tells me that the Gable and Lombard story would be interesting enough without dramatizing it.
Crass rubbish, Jill Clayburgh should be shot for doing such an injustice to such a wonderful star. James Brolin fares better and at least gives an effort portraying Gable. The historical accuracy is a joke, the period detail is phony. Pure tripe and should be avoided at all cost.
