>Watch a Carole Lombard film


“I wish Carole Lombard would receive some of the attention lavished on Marilyn Monroe. They were so alike: blond, beautiful, sexy and at their best in comedy. They married famous men, and they died tragically young. The Monroe legend grows. Do people remember Lombard? (…) She was a better actress than Monroe, left more classic films, (…) her artistry lives, and her best films continue to deliver joy. She threw herself exuberantly into parts and wasn’t afraid to look foolish for a laugh. In many ways, she served as an inspiration to Lucille Ball.” (Hal Boedeker)

While I don’t agree with the better than Monroe thing among most of other comparissons, I find it a pity that movie lovers don’t remember Carole Lombard or in the worst cases have never even heard of her. As I’ve mentioned on a post before, it’s remarkable how she’s hardly mentioned in film related shows, magazines or media in general. Having heard of her long ago, I’ve actually “discovered” her very recently (through Twentieth Century and Nothing Sacred), and would love to see more of her pictures. It might not always be easy to find her films, but here’s one of them.
