THE JINX IS UP for now-lucky Gary Clarke. After years on the brink of success and years of falling off that brink, he’s finally made it for keeps. Fans, who got to know him from NBC-TV’s “The Virginian,” made Gary a Photoplay Gold Medal Winner. What about the other side of Gary? His off-again, on-again romance with Connie Stevens is off. This time, they say, “for good.” “For good” came after they’d announced their wedding date. But in Hollywood they twist the old saying to, unlucky in love, lucky in career. That’s what Gary’s got now.
