Lot 2475: Handsome vintage matte-finish 7.75 x 9.75 photo of Gable grinning in his US Air Force uniform, signed and inscribed in fountain pen, "To Norma Silvernail, Best wishes always, Clark Gable." Double-matted and framed to an overall size of 13.25 x 15. In fine condition, with lower right edge of photo no longer beneath mat and a slight chip to extreme right edge of glass front. Alongside Jimmy Stewart, Tyrone Power, and other actors who joined the US war effort, a 41-year-old Gable enlisted in the US Army Air Force in August of 1942. During his service he earned an Air Medal and a Distinguished Flying Cross and was promoted to Major in 1944. An immensely appealing portrait of the heroic leading man.
