John Wayne’s brutal put down of Clark Gable in bitter row: ‘Expressly forbidden!’

JOHN WAYNE brutally put down his rival and Gone with the Wind star, Clark Gable, describing any friendship as "expressly forbidden" after he fell out with director John Ford, unearthed accounts show.

Western star John Wayne stars in the 1959 flick Rio Bravo, which airs at 9pm on The Classic Movie channel next Tuesday. The Oscar winner stars with a box office-breaking cast, including crooner Dean Martin, in the film, which is set in 1860s Texas. It follows the story of a small-town sheriff, and his moody deputy, as they try to keep a murderous thug behind bars long enough for the US marshal to arrive and take him away.
