In 1949, Paulette was briefly linked to legendary actor Clark Gable (Gone with the wind, Mogambo and The Misfits) in a highly publicized relationship. Gable was the widower of the great Carole Lombard who died in a plane crash in 1942.

The same year he and Paulette met, Gable chose – to Paulette’s great disappointment – to marry one of her friends, Sylvia Ashley, widow of Douglas Fairbanks Sr. However, they divorced in 1952 and the actor married his 5th and last wife in 1955.
