Loretta Young : Mommie Dearest : Part 2

Loretta Young : Mommie Dearest : Part 2

Gable and Young saw each other only socially in the years that followed. Clark had married Carole Lombard (who died in a plane crash, in 1942). In 1950 they made another film together, Key to the City. It’s believed Loretta may have told Clark about their daughter during this time, as he turned up unannounced to her house one Sunday to meet Judy, who was now 15. They exchanged small talk, he kissed her on the forehead, then left.
Judy could not have looked more like both her mother and her father. She had inherited Gable’s large ears, and remembered as a baby Young continually pulling a bonnet over her ears whenever they would go out in public. At age 7 she underwent an operation to have them pinned back. But people still talked.
