35 Vintage Photos of Clark Gable and Carole Lombard During the Filming of ‘No Man of Her Own’ (1932)

No Man of Her Own is a 1932 American pre-Code romantic comedy-drama film starring Clark Gable and Carole Lombard as a married couple in their only film together, several years before their own legendary marriage in real life.

The film was directed by Wesley Ruggles, and originated as an adaptation of No Bed of Her Own, a 1931 novel by Val Lewton, but ended up based more on a story by Benjamin Glazer and Edmund Goulding, although it retained the title from Lewton’s novel. It is not related to the 1950 film of the same name.

Released just three years after the stock market crash of 1929, the plot focuses on the character “Babe” Stewart (played by Gable), a card sharp and gambling cheat, and “Connie Randall”, a street-wise librarian with whom he develops a relationship. Prevalent themes throughout the story include crime, gambling, dishonesty, love, commitment and redemption.

These vintage photos captured portraits of Clark Gable and Carole Lombard together during the filming of No Man of Her Own in 1932.
