Mogambo

Clark Gable comes off a lot better in this rubbish than Grace Kelly or Ava Gardner. Neither of the women reach the level of acting of small-town dinner theater. Best part was a character actually saying, "Go on without me. I'm all in." The safari photography is real good, but it's in the service of a lost cause from the first: emotionally incongruous and impossible, the relationships are incomprehensible where they are not strictly cliche.
