When Clark first met Vivien it wasn't in the happiest of circumstances. Clarence Sinclair Bull, one of MGMs great staff stills photographer, had an appointment to shoot pre-production of Vivien and Gable on an old Southern staircase that was a standing prop and had been used in many MGM costume pictures that its carpet was threadbare. Clark showed up and they waited ;an hour and a half later , Vivien still hadn't arrived. Gable was "madder than a hornet" .
"Is this the way they do things over there?" he rasped , meaning England. "If it is , then I don't want to make this picture with her ". Bull discovered the appointment had been set up by Selznick's man for two hours later . Gable took a walk ,came back , still in a sour mood ,said " I still think I'll walk out of this picture with a dame like that " "I quite agree , Mr Gable ," came a clear voice from the side of the set ,where the missing person had been standing, regarding Bull and the star who was to be her Rhett Butler . "If I were a man , I'd tell that Vivien Leigh to go straight back to England and f--k herself ". The anger immediately left Gable ." Ten seconds after they met ," Bull recalled, "she wrapped him around her little finger . She really had charm " .
