Carole Lombard got her start in Hollywood as a tomboy but left as a beloved leading lady, iconic beauty, and one-half of entertainment’s most celebrated couple. Lombard’s star shone brightest in the darkest days of the Depression as moviegoers recognized the small town girl beneath even her most glamorous roles. While other actors failed to make the transition from silent films to talkies, Lombard’s good diction and sensual timbre not only kept her working but also made her a household name. Her career and life were cut short when Lombard died in a plane crash returning from a trip to sell war bonds. Her fans celebrate that Lombard enjoyed being in films as much as they love watching them.
