Well, it may not have happened outside Marilyn’s active fantasy life. She says it’s fantasy, but she doesn’t say the fantasy didn’t come true, now does she?
In the kissing scenes [with Clark Gable], I kissed him with real affection. I didn’t want to go to bed with him, but I wanted him to know how much I liked and appreciated him.
When I came back from a day off the set, he patted my ass and told me if I didn’t behave myself he would give me a good spanking.
I looked him in the eye and said, “Don’t tempt me”. He burst out laughing so loud he was tearing.
Because of his performance I have seen Gone With The Wind over and over again. He was perfect. All right, that was a long time ago. I must have been about 13. I have never seen a man who was as romantic as he was in that picture.
It was different when I got to know him. Then I wanted him to be my father. I wouldn’t care if he spanked me as long as he made up for it by hugging me and telling me I was daddy’s little girl and he loved me. Of course that’s fantasy.
Of course it is. Thanks to Eros Blog for the link.
