Following the tradition of the “October-November special holidays of “All

Hallows’ Day”, also known as “All Saints’ Day”, we are honoring the lives of

some of the American and Mexican celebrities whose lives were shortened by

tobacco use.

Clark Gable is best known for his performance as Rhett Butler in the 1939 classic Gone with theClark Gable and Lana Turner Wind. The role earned him an Academy Award nomination for Best Actor. Gable was in poor health when filming began from years of heavy smoking and drinking, and in the previous decade he had suffered two seizures. Gable died in Los Angeles, California in 1960 from a fourth heart attack. He was 59.

Lana Turner was well-known for the glamour and sensuality she brought to almost all of her movies. Turner appeared in several television roles, most notably one season (1982-83) on the series Falcon Crest, but the majority of her final decade was spent out of the public eye. She died in her home in Century City, California at the age of 74 in 1995 due to complications from throat cancer. Although she was diagnosed in 1992, she remained a heavy smoker until her death.

Frank SinatraFrank Sinatra was a popular and highly acclaimed male vocalist and actor. Renowned for his impeccable phrasing and timing, critics place him alongside such artists as Bing Crosby, Elvis Presley, and The Beatles as one of the most important, popular and influential musical figures of the 20th century. Sinatra won ten Grammy Awards during his career, including Album of the Year in 1959, 1965 and 1966 and Record of the Year for "Strangers in the Night" in 1966. Sinatra was inducted into the Big Band and Jazz Hall of Fame in 1980. In 2001 BBC Radio 2 named Sinatra as the "Greatest Voice of the Twentieth Century." In 1986, Frank Sinatra had surgery to remove part of his intestines. He died in 1998 at the age of 82 of a heart attack in Los Angeles, California, after a long battle with coronary heart disease, kidney disease, bladder cancer, and dementia, some of which might have been a result of his tobacco use. Legend has it that Sinatra was buried with some of his favorite things, a flash of jack Daniel's whiskey, a lighter and a packet of Camel cigarettes.

Desi Arnaz produced and starred in I Love Lucy, in which he played a fictitious version of himself, Cuban orchestra leader Ricky Ricardo. Arnaz starred with his real-life wife, Lucille Ball, who played Ricky's wife, Lucy. Arnaz, a lifelong smoker, died in Del Mar at the age of 69 from lung cancer.

Humphrey BogartHumphrey Bogart was an American actor of legendary fame who retained his legacy after death. In 1999, the American Film Institute named Bogart the Greatest Male Star of All Time. Some of Bogart's most notable films include The Maltese Falcon (1941), Casablanca (1942), The African Queen (1951) (for which he won an Academy Award for Best Actor in a Leading Role). In all, he appeared in 75 feature motion pictures. By the late 1950s, Bogart's health was failing. Bogart contracted cancer of the esophagus. He almost never spoke of it and refused to see a doctor until January of 1956, and by then removal of his esophagus, two lymph nodes and a rib was too little, too late. Bogart died on January 14, 1957 after falling into a coma. He was only 57 years old
