Per IMDb, young superstar Loretta Young starred alongside Clark Gable, who was married at the time, in the 1935 film adaptation of the Jack London classic novel, “The Call of the Wild.” She had only just separated from her husband, and by all reports, she was not interested in her leading man’s flirtatious overtures, per The Hairpin. On an overnight train ride back to Hollywood from where the movie was shooting on location, Clark Gable entered Young’s train car where she was sleeping. What happened next was kept a secret by everyone involved until many years later.

Loretta Young never accused Clark Gable of any impropriety related to that evening, nor did she say much about the incident at all. What is suspected, however, is that Clark Gable fathered a child with Loretta Young that evening on the train. Young didn’t reveal the pregnancy at the time and took elaborate steps to conceal it from the media, using an elaborate ruse involving an adoption. The baby was named Judy, and while she grew, she began to look more and more like Gable, and Young was finally forced to admit the truth. Clark Gable, the romantic leading man of lore, was, in fact, an unfaithful philanderer, via The Hairpin.
