Ap­par­ently, Hitler gave a damn

Weekend Argus (Saturday Edition) - - FRONT PAGE -

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.

Gable prob­a­bly wouldn’t have given a damn. – Auc­tions Writer.
