n this inaugural volume in the Indiana Historical Society Press's Indiana Biography series, Wes D. Gehring, a noted authority on film comedy, examines Lombard's legacy, focusing on both the public and private figure from her early days as merely beautiful window dressing in Mack Sennett silent films, to her development as the leading motion-picture comedienne of her time, to her tragic death in a January 1942 plane crash.
.....She was a tomboy growing up and this led to to entry into the movies when she was spotted by a producer who was looking for her type in a movie role. From this unlikely beginning she worked her way up to one of the highest paid actresses in Hollywood, married two of its top males along the way, William Powell and Clark Gable and was at the top of her career when she lost her life in a tragic plane crash.
.....The book was a little thin on background and read almost like a synopsis so I can't give it 5 stars but it is certainly worth reading. Carole Lombarde was a fine actress and universally liked by her peers
Many pictures. She was taken from us at the age of 33 in a plane crash which she took on the flip of a coin.
This can be followed up with dvds on Netflix or sold on Amazon. Carole was one in a million.
