    SKU: BPB-30931867

    Judy Lewis was in her 30s before she discovered that what was common knowledge among the Hollywood elite that she was the daughter of Clark Gable and Lorena Young. The two had fallen in love while on location filming Call of the Wild, but Gable was a married man and, according to Young's Catholic beliefs in Hollywood strict moral code, he was off limits. On the brink of a mega stardom herself and terrified at her romance with Gabel would ruin their careers, Young gave birth to Judy in secret later "adopting" her from the orphanage from which she had been sent as an infant. Growing up, Judy who met Mr Gable once, was never told that he was her father.


    Loretta Young was a controlling woman who had little time for the daughter with whom she later described as a mortal sin -  a child who was a reminder of the one thing that she had been unable to control. To this day she never publicly acknowledged her daughter as her own. Didn't hear the truth about her parents until her own marriage, when her husband told her what Hollywood had been whispering about for years. And for years, Loretta Young denied it until Judy forced an admission that ultimately left the connection between mother and daughter in tatters only then was Judy able to claim her father a man she would never know except on the movie screen.
