Loretta Young and Clark Gable had an affair during the filming of "The Call of the Wild". Their daughter Judy never spent time with her father who was married to another at the time of the affair. Loretta shared the identity of Judy's biological father with her later in life. She relied on her close-knit family and trusted secretary Alda to keep the secret that could have ruined both of their careers. Adultery and a child born out of wedlock could destroy careers.
A treat for movie buffs of the 1930's and 1940's.
