Honky Tonk (1941) - Clark Gable Colorized Version DVD
Honky Tonk (1941)
Con artist Candy Johnson (Clark Gable) has been run out of town after town. Then he got wise. He went out and got a town of his own: Yellow Creek, Nevada.
Lana Turner stars opposite Gable in this sometimes comic, always terrific Western. The title honky tonk is the Square Deal Saloon, where Candy and poker-playing sidekick Sniper (Chill Wills) cut cards but not the liquor. The colorful townsfolk include a Justice of the Peace (Frank Morgan) who's good pals with John Barleycorn, a fiery do-gooder (Marjorie Main), a long-suffering dancehall girl (Claire Trevor) and a law-unto-himself sheriff (Albert Dekker). Topping it all is the pizzazz of the first Gable-Turner pairing. After kissing her, Gable says: "Why don't you jump in and get wet all over?"
