A look at the beauty of Hollywood icon, Carole Lombard (1908-1942)…
Actress Carole Lombard was a Hollywood movie star and the wife of William Powell and later Clark Gable.
She starred in many films during her short career, and had a gift for comedy. She is known for being one of the most beautiful and glamorous of the Old Hollywood guard.
Tragically, she died in a plane crash at the age of just 33.
Gable was devasted and, with something of a death wish, joined the United States Army Air Forces soon after. He married two more times but when he died, was interred at Forest Lawn Memorial Park next to Lombard, in 1960.
