In 1938, Clark Gable and Myrna Loy were voted King and Queen of the Movies in a magazine poll.  William Powell had placed fourth. The following day, Ms. Loy received a huge florist’s box. Inside were bunches of old, sour grapes — with a note from Powell that said “Congratulations from William the Fourth.”
