Clark Gable in "Run Silent, Run Deep"
Before Gable became a star, he worked all sorts of jobs which involved manual labor - oil rigs, electric companies. His father, who was an oil prospector (not a very successful one) was always disappointed in Gable for not following him into the oil business. Even after Gabe was making a lot of money in Hollywood, his father made a comment that he could have made more if he had gone into oil. Sometimes you just can't please your father, even if you're Clark Gable.
