William Clark Gable (February 1, 1901 – November 16, 1960) was an American film actor. Gable began his career as a stage actor and appeared as an extra in silent films between 1924 and 1926, and progressed to supporting roles with a few films for MGM in 1931. The next year he landed his first leading Hollywood role and became a leading man in more than 60 motion pictures over the next three decades.

Gable was arguably best known for his role as Rhett Butler in the epic Gone with the Wind (1939), for which he received his third nomination for the Academy Award for Best Actor. He was also nominated for leading roles in Mutiny on the Bounty (1935), and he won for It Happened One Night (1934).[1] His other films include Manhattan Melodrama (1934) and The Misfits (1961).

Gable appeared opposite some of the most popular actresses of the time. Joan Crawford, who was his favorite actress to work with,[2] was partnered with Gable in eight films; Myrna Loy worked with him seven times, and he was paired withJean Harlow in six productions. He also starred with Lana Turner in four features, and with Norma Shearer and Ava Gardner in three each. Gable’s final film, The Misfits (1961), united him with Marilyn Monroe (also in her last screen appearance). He was named the seventh greatest male actor of all time by the American Film Institute.[1]

Paul Montgomery “Pauly” Shore (born February 1, 1968) is an American comedian and actor who starred in several comedy films in the 1990s and hosted a video show on MTV in the late 1980s and early 1990s. Shore is still performing stand-up comedy and toured in 2012.[1]

 

 

Early life

Shore was born Paul Montgomery Shore,[2] the son of Mitzi Shore (née Saidel), who founded The Comedy Store, and Sammy Shore, a comedian.[3][4] Shore was raised Jewish,[5] and grew up in Beverly Hills, California. He graduated fromBeverly Hills High School in 1986.[6]

Career

Stand-up career

Inspired by his parents’ work in comedy and show business, a 17-year-old Shore made his stand-up debut at the Alley Cat Bistro in Culver City. “Everyone else in school was filling out their SAT applications, but I just passed mine back. I knew I wasn’t going to go to college.”[7] Shore was mentored by Sam Kinison and opened several of his sets. While touring the comedy club circuit, Shore cultivated an alter ego persona, “The Weasel”.

“The Weasel” involved Shore speaking in a surfer parlance, heavily peppered with dudespeak slang such as “edged”, “melons” and “grinding” as well as his catchphrase, “Hey, BU-DDY.”[8]

MTV

Shore’s big break came as an on-air MTV VJ, a position he held from 1989 to 1994. At the height of his MTV fame, Shore had his own show, Totally Pauly, serving as a host, most memorably on MTV’s annual Spring Break parties. He also released a music video, “Lisa, Lisa, the One I Adore”.[8]

Film career

In 1992, Shore starred in Encino Man which was a modest hit. The film’s success propelled Shore to star in additional personalized vehicles, albeit less successful: Son in Law (1993), In the Army Now (1994), Jury Duty (1995), and Bio-Dome(1996). (All five films received sharply negative reviews, with the last three each holding a rating below 10% at Rotten Tomatoes; in addition, each of the movies grossed less at the box office than the one before.) He makes a cameo appearancein the American rock band Limp Bizkit music video “N 2 Gether Now“,[9][10] as a pizza deliveryman, and a briefer appearance in Break Stuff.[11]

In 2003, Shore produced, wrote, directed and starred in Pauly Shore Is Dead, a semi-autobiographical mockumentary, and in 2005 starred in the short-lived reality television series Minding the Store. In 2010 Shore starred in Adopted, which sees him traveling to Africa to adopt a child.[12] In addition, he has several short subject films and multiple projects in the works such as his MTV pilot called The Shores and various projects with such as Funny or Die.[13]
