Adolf Hitler and Clark Gable

During WWII, Adolf Hitler offered a reward to any German Soldier who could capture screen legend, Clark Gable, alive. The "Gone With The Wind" star -- who was then flying combat missions as a B-17 gunner -- was reportedly the Fuhrer's favorite actor, in part because of his German ancestry. Despite news of the bounty on his head, Gable continued to serve and later earned the Air Medal and the Distinguished Flying Cross.
