Let it snow while you stay safe and warm in your own castle with the King,

Chill out with Turner Classic Movies on Monday with a marathon of Clark Gable movies in honor of the King's 120th birthday. The festival, which got started at 6 a.m. continues through 8 p.m. with Gable teaming up with some of his most popular leading leadies.

At 12:30 p.m., he pairs up with Jean Harlow in her final film "Saratoga" (1937). Gable woos Myrna Loy in the 1938 aviation pic "Test Pilot" co-starring Spencer Tracy at 2:15. Wrapping things up is a double shot of Gable and Joan Crawford — the 1934 weepie "Forsaking All Others" (4:30 p.m.) and 1940's bizarre "Strange Cargo" (6 p.m.) that's part penal colony escape yarn and religious parable.
