Happy Birthday Carole Lombard

Carole Lombard was born in Fort Wayne, Indiana in 1908. Her parents divorced in 1914, so her mother moved Carole and her brothers to Los Angeles. Carole soon became interested in acting, and made her screen debut in 1921. During the 1930's she became the queen of screwball comedies, and was the highest paid actress of the time. She was married twice, first to William Powell, and then to Clark Gable. Between her marriages, she was known for her wild parties that she hosted at her home on Hollywood Boulevard. However, when she got married to Gable, the two bought a ranch and led a quieter life, raising chickens and horses. Did you know that Carole turned down the lead role in "It Happened One Night", that Claudette Colbert won an oscar for?
