Claudette Colbert – 1934


 

Clark Gable and Claudette Colbert in It Happened One Night (1934). Columbia Pictures was considered a “Poverty Row” studio where bigger studios would send their troubled stars as a punishment or a humbling experience. This was true in the case of Clark Gable, who was sent over by MGM after he asked for a pay raise. However, despite Columbia being a smaller and poorer studio, the film was very successful and lifted them out from Poverty Row (Classic Movie Hub).
