Gable and Lombard is a film with many major assets, not the least of which is the stunning and smashing performance of Jill Clayburgh as Carole Lombard. James Brolin manages excellently to project the necessary Clark Gable attributes while adding his own individuality to the characterization.

Sidney J. Furie’s direction of handsome period production supplies zest as well as romance to the tragi-comedy aspects of the two stars’ offscreen life together.

Barry Sandler’s original screenplay conveys the excitement and fun of an era when everyone seemed to enjoy themselves in the profession of making pictures.

Gable and Lombard is candid without being prurient; delightful without being superficially glossy; heart-warming without being corny.
