Coming back from the war


Recommended Posts


The ads for MGM's ADVENTURE proclaimed 'Gable's back and Garson's got him.' Of course, we're talking about Clark Gable's return to motion picture acting after his service during World War II.


But he wasn't the only studio star who had returned with great fanfare after a stint with the U.S. military.


At Paramount, Alan Ladd's first film after the war was AND NOW TOMORROW, a romance with Loretta Young. The studio's advertising department had written across the upper portion of posters two words that were sure to bring cinemaddicts rushing to movie theatres. Those words: 'Ladd's Back.'




Meanwhile, at Fox, Tyrone Power hadn't made a new picture in three years, since CRASH DIVE. Zanuck cast him in a unique type of story-- this time, it was as the post-war hero in Somerset Maugham's THE RAZOR'S EDGE.
