Clark Gable’s grandson is following in the Hollywood legend’s footsteps, but according to court documents, his first film was a disaster filled with alleged sexual harassment and dangerous situations.
A sordid tale of abuse and sexual promiscuity is documented in court papers filed by executive producer Adriana Trevino in a lawsuit against soap stud Victor Alfieri, who served as director of Gable’s first film, Looking For Clara.
Alfieri, who starred in Days of our Lives and The Bold And The Beautiful, is painted as the madman who put Clark J. Gable in these harmful situations.
During torture scenes for the movie, court documents allege that Alfieri went too far by keeping “Clark Gable in a cold wet bathtub tied up, for hours. Gable was unable to move.” And documents alleged Alfieri held a real operating drill to Clark’s abdomen.
Another encounter alleges that “Clark J. Gable overdosed on Lemoncello, an Italian liqueur with extremely high alcohol content. Alfieri forced Gable to drink the entire bottle while filming a scene.” The next day he complained of anal bleeding, diarrhea, vomiting, dehydration, shakes, illness and pains.
According to the documents, Alfieri created a sexually charged environment on set where he would allegedly say (to male and female actors) “Maybe if you suck my c**k, you will improve your performance.”
“During one of the recorded takes of a scene, Alfieri directed [actor] Joel Moody to touch Clark J. Gable’s penis. Yelling, Alfieri said ‘Touch his c**k! Rub his a**!'” documents state.
The amended cross complained was filed by Trevino, who is suing Alfieri for fraud, breach of contract and defamation. Alfieri had originally sued Trevino, who was allegedly his lover and business partner, for libel and breach of contract. He later dropped that suit. Trevino claims Alfieri’s lawsuit was a preemptive strike — getting all the headlines and damaging her reputation.
Clark J. Gable is now the host of Cheaters.
