Apparently, Hitler gave a damn
FORMER movie legend Clark Gable’s leather flight jacket from his World War II days in the US Army Air Corps, which he joined in 1942 as aerial gunner and instructor, sold on auction for $14 350 (about R187 000).
“The King” was Adolf Hitler’s favourite actor and he apparently issued instructions that his troops should try to capture him unscathed so the Fuhrer could meet him.
