“No one can remain a lady after saying and doing what I have just overheard. However, ladies have seldom head any charm for me. I know what they are thinking, but they never have the courage or lack of breeding to say what they think. And that, in time, becomes a bore.” -Rhett Butler


Five minutes after they’d met,’ Clarence Sinclair Bull recalled, ‘she wrapped him round her little finger…she really had charm.’ Charm, but not as far as Gable was concerned the sexiness that might have fired their on-screen romance. He was more curious about this woman than amorous towards her. Above all, he was wary of her…Vivien, for her part, was not sexually attracted to Gable. Just as she could not see Olivier as Rhett Butler, now she could not visualize Gable as a substitute for Olivier. Both men were dedicated to different art forms and belonged to different romantic traditions.“ -Alexander Walker
