Here’s a treat for all of the Carole Lombard fans out there – and I know there are quite a lot of you. The most popular posts on my blog are always the ones that mention the incomparable Carole. Not bad for a lady who was born in 1906 and died in 1942!
Stories of Carole enchanted me when I first heard of her as a teen. She was discovered at age 12 when her next-door neighbor saw her playing in the street. Her real name was Jane Alice Peters, a perfectly pretty name, if you ask me, but one that didn’t have enough “glamour” in those days for Hollywood. She consulted a numerologist and changed it to Carole Lombard.
So I went on YouTube and ran a search to see if there were any full Carole Lombard movies available for viewing online. There are – in fact, it turns out that there are full Carole Lombard movies over there in abundance! This, I have a feeling, will make quite a lot of people’s day. Take your pick and by all means enjoy!
