My plan was to simply promote the film, No Man of Her Own starring Clark Gable and Carole Lombard. It's a romantic comedy from 1932 and the only film the famous couple acted in together. Clark is at his utmost adorable (of course, he's pretty much always adorable, isn't he?) and the chemistry between the two is delicious, as one might expect. Hollywood's depiction of the nineteen-thirties! Love conquers all the silly fiascoes! A "bad" man becomes "good"! Top hats! Flirting in the library! What more could I ask for? Anyway, my plan became interrupted when I saw all these marvelous photos of Carole Lombard when I was web surfing. Sorry if the photos bore you but I just think they're fascinating. I'm tempted to bob my hair all of the sudden!

Yeah, did I mention how yum Mr. Gable is in this film, yet?

Because he is very yum...

If your daughter works at the library, look out.  She will not be able to say "no."

On the set of It Happened One Night!

Lombard with Robert Montgomery on the set of Mr. and Mrs. Smith.

Here's a nice little TCM article about No Man of Her Own.

I've never seen this one, but I would love to watch it. Clark and Carole? Irresistible. I think the only Carole Lombard movie I've seen is My Man Godfrey which is way funnier than you expect.

Yeah,this is a fun one. I'd only seen Lombard in one other thing, that being Mr. and Mrs. Smith. I'll have to look into My Man Godfrey. I've heard of it, I think. : )
