Grace Kelly & Adventure

Clark Gable starred with Ava Gardner and Grace Kelly in Mogambo.  The film was directed by John Ford and was shot in Africa.  Grace Kelly was already a star but she was still new to movies, and great adventures.

Clark Gable recalled the 24 year old Grace with affection.  He told a fond story of how excited she was with their African location.

Every morning, Grace went out to the filming locations, even when she wasn't needed in those scenes.  It meant getting up early, and riding on an uncomfortable wagon over miles of rutted dirt tracks in the heat.

Clark Gable couldn't understand why Grace didn't stay back with the comforts of their hotel.  He asked her, "It's hell for me to bounce for miles with the bugs and the mosquitoes and everything ... why do you do it?"

Grace looked around her and replied, "Oh, I want to see everything.  I want to have stories to tell my grandchildren."
