Movies Adventure (MGM 1945, Clark Gable, Greer Garson) Published 4 months ago on January 13, 2019 Clark Gable returned from the war to this melodrama of a sailor who romances and marries a shy librarian (Greer Garson) and then promptly returns to wandering the seas. When he returns to discover her giving birth to their child, he struggles to master his footloose ways. An uncharacteristically touching portrayal by Gable. Unpopular with critics at the time, but rewards a second look. Adventure was not just Clark Gable’s return to the screen after his time in the Air Force, but also his first feature following the death of his wife, Carole Lombard, who was killed in a plane crash in 1942. production details USA | MGM | 125 minutes | 1945 Director: Victor Fleming Producer: Sam Zimbalist Original Story: Clyde Brion Davis Cinematography: Joseph Ruttenberg Editor: Frank Sullivan Music: Herbert Stothart Script: Frederick Hazlitt Brennan, Vincent Lawrence Production Designer Cedric Gibbons, Urie McCleary Set Designer: Edwin B.
