Somewhere I’ll Find You

Lana Turner is a sexy, torchy, clinging blonde. Clark Gable has seemingly always made the same impress on women. Tossing them both together, even if surrounding their clinches with but a specious story, provides an extremely potent brew.

Lana Turner is a sexy, torchy, clinging blonde. Clark Gable has seemingly always made the same impress on women. Tossing them both together, even if surrounding their clinches with but a specious story, provides an extremely potent brew.

The fact that the 1940 Cosmopolitan magazine serial [by Charles Hoffman] has been updated and given a rousing patriotic finish will not once permit the audience to forget that a supposedly irresistible force (Gable) is in contact most of the 107 minutes with a very movable object.

Japan’s invasion of the Philippines is overshadowed and even at the finish, when Gable is dictating the story of the fall of Bataan peninsula, the story seems to merely await the final showdown with Turner. Thus Gable could just as well have been a soldier, or a truck driver, rather than a go-getting, ruthless foreign correspondent for a NY daily.

One of the picture’s most ridiculous angles is having Gable, deep in the jungles of Bataan, dictating a story to a Filipino secretary.
