Carole Lombard

CAROLE LOMBARD (1908-1942), born Jane Alice Peters

My Man Godfrey (1936)

Haven't you seen My Man Godfrey (1936)? Arguably her most famous role and one that best distills her comedic sensibilities.

Watch this and then see these other four films.

Twentieth Century (1934) the film that really put Lombard on the map as a comic actress
Hands Across the Table (1935) smart, albeit relatively unheralded film; the first of her four teamings with Fred MacMurray
Nothing Sacred (1937) Carole's only outing in Technicolor
To Be or Not to Be (1942) sublime black comedy directed by Ernst Lubitsch; Lombard's final film
