John Wayne branded ‘idiot’ Clark Gable ‘too stupid to do anything except act’

John Wayne's daughter revealed the truth behind the feud between Clark Gable and famous actors and directors including The Duke.

John Wayne was well known for his tough and gristly persona on and off-screen, not holding back on what he really thought of peers he clashed with. He lambasted Red River co-star Montgomery Clift as “an arrogant little bas**rd” and blasted Gene Hackman as “one of the worst actors in Hollywood.” Duke was part of a conservative inner circle that included his long-time collaborator John Ford and it turns out Wayne’s exceptionally rude dismissal of Clark Gable was rooted in a feud with the director.
