Thanks for the info. Well at least I was right that if it was her it had to be a very early shot. I have a lot of stills of Carole and this is one I hadn't seen before. What a beauty.

She was lovely. I still don;t know what she's wearing. It reminds me of when I was a little kid and used to roll up in the drapes.

Cute. I wonder if that is the picture Dietrich was talking about when she referred to the lame they dressed Carole Lombard in? I can't remember the exact quote, but Maria Riva writes about the search for a perfect fabric for one of Dietrich's films (DEVIL IS A WOMAN maybe?) Anyway, Dietrich didn;t think too highly of it.

Meanwhile, Fay Wray watches Lombard and Dietrich go at it from the sidelines...

Carole, darling, let's stop arguing and just mock Miss Streisand's clothing choices for a bit...

In honor of Scrodinger's birthday, here's Schrodinger's Bette (with a nod to Sir Terry Pratchett)

You're probably right...except possibly in a movie. (Well not in so many words, but that was the message of Adam's Rib after all. )

Ive always had mixed feelings about their relationship in real life. Maybe Kate had a streak of **** she was indulging?
