    Totally unremarkable, but charming nonetheless due to star power.

    The first half of this movie is very good. Clark Gable and Carole Lombard - who would later become one of Hollywood's most glamorous couples - worked together for the first, and sadly only time. Their chemistry is great, as is the supporting cast. Unfortunately, 'No Man of Her Own' reverts from energetic comedy to being a rather conventional romance in the second half, and the ending is rather abrupt.

    The only screen pairing of future real life husband and wife Clark Gable and Carole Lombard. Devastated by her death in a 1942 plane crash, Gable never got over losing her. After being widowed by Lombard (and despite marrying two more times) when Gable died 18 years later, his then pregnant wife/widow, Kay Spreckles, laid him to rest next to Lombard, as he had requested.

    The great chemistry between the two leads is about the only thing going for this movie, unless you count the surprisingly risque outfits and innuendos. The storyline is choppy and barely holds together, and I sure could've used some music to fill in some of the empty spaces.

    Utterly ordinary comedy drama whose sole distinction is the pairing of Gable and Lombard in their only appearance together. They do well but Carole was still a few years from her breakthrough as a major star in Twentieth Century and here is just a leading lady with too blonde hair and awful makeup hiding her natural radiance. Worth one watch for the pairing but you'll forget it almost as soon as it's over.

    For being from the early 30s this movie was very well acted. The relationship between Gable and Lombard was fantastic. I can only imagine the actual chemistry between these two on the set of this film. You can really see how much the two enjoy each other as it is the only film with the two of them together.

    love the chemistry between Gable and Lombard, wonderful film. Clark Gable is so hot in this film... i can see why he was chosen to play Rhett Butler, he has this mischievious smile, that says look out honey, i am nothing but trouble.

    I really loved the chemistry between Lombard and Gable in this film. It was unique in the fact that you could really feel it growing in the film and it wasn't just a single level throughout.
