The Beautiful Carole Lombard

Isn't she a pretty young thing? And the lucky gal was fortunate enough to have been married to William Powell and later to Clark Gable. She died suddenly in 1942, quite young at the age of 34, in a plane crash. She established herself in the late 20s as a Hollywood comedian and went on to have a film superb career.

She is beautiful. I think I read that Clark was "never the same" after Carole died. What a tragedy.

I recently watched My Man Godfrey... all I could think was how much she reminded me of what I think is Paris Hilton's character. Not looks... just the spoiled rich brat part.

I don't know much about Mrs Lombard, so I don't have any opinions on her, but I am sure I will love her. If Stanwych and Shearer won me over... I am sure she could too!

Beautiful photos of her as well!

Some lovely photos of Lombard, and I'm delighted you honored her.

Forgive me for tooting my own horn, but if you want to learn more about her, I cordially invite you to visit my classic Hollywood community, "Carole & Co." We examine her life and times and people she knew and worked with. We've been up since June 2007, and we're nearing 1,000 entries (with many rare photos). I think you will enjoy it. Check us out at
