Clark Gable III (Clark James Gable, 22) has been arrested for allegedly pointing a laser at a police helicopter while he was in Hollywood.
The classic movie star’s grandson has apparently been in some trouble before, and pointing a laser is not helping his aspiring career as an actor. Clark III has been trying to make it as an actor, but his trouble is leading him to be a Lindsay rather than his late grandfather…but at least Lindsay waited until she had her name in a positive aspect before she completely wasted her positive persona away. Clark on the other hand is off to a rough start.
But it’s a wonder if Clark’s grandfather would be disappointed…or proud. Clark Gable as well as plenty of other movie stars were know known for making the right decisions. A lot of them didn’t even enjoy acting.
Clark supposedly was in a relationship with Joan Crawford, which is already a big minus for the “Gone With the Wind” star. Plus things were not going well when Vivien Leigh was on the set…her life was pretty tumultous, and bringing it to the set was a big downfall.
And there was of course the wild story of when Clark Gable died. It was right after he filmed “The Misfits” with Marilyn Monroe, and rumor has it that this film was what killed Clark. He claimed that he had to carry Marilyn through the entire film, working around her alcohol issues where he was getting more stressed and outraged by the minute!
So maybe that’s where Clark’s grandson gets this from. Maybe the grandfather was doing the exact same things when he wanted to make it b ig. Although it’s possible that he never wanted to be big, but Hollywood was forced upon him.
After all, look at what Marilyn, Joan and Vivien went through. It looks like there’s a connection in the next generations…i.e. Clark III and Lindsay.
