  • Carole Lombard (née Jane Alice Peters le 6 octobre 1908 à Fort Wayne, Indiana, États-Unis – morte le 16 janvier 1942) est une actrice américaine de la première moitié du XXe siècle. Elle est surtout connue pour ses rôles dans des comédies des années 1930 devenues des classiques. Elle commence sa carrière à la fin des années 1920 dans la troupe des Bathing Beauties de Mack sennett. Lombard devient une des plus grandes actrices de comédies de Hollywood dans les années 1930. En 1932, elle tourne Un mauvais garçon qui marquera sa rencontre avec Clark Gable, son futur second époux, dans leur unique film ensemble. On lui proposa le rôle d'Ellie Andrews dans New York-Miami (It Happened One Night) (1934), mais les dates de tournage chevauchaient celles de Bolero ce qui la contraint à refuser3.
  • Malgré son charme, elle était une comédienne naturelle, et n'avait pas peur de paraître idiote pour faire rire. Sa vivacité et son humour vont s’affirmer pleinement1 dans des comédies comme Twentieth Century (1934) réalisé par Howard Hawks, Mon homme Godfrey (1936) réalisé par Gregory La Cava, et La Joyeuse Suicidée (Nothing Sacred) (1937) réalisé par William A. Wellman, elle reçoit les louanges des critiques et est décrite comme l'une des pièces maîtresses de la screwball comedy. Cependant, elle joue plusieurs rôles dramatiques notamment dans L'Autre avec Cary Grant ou dans Vigil in the Night, interprétant l'infirmière Anne Lee face à Brian Aherne. Produit par David O. Selznick, La Joyeuse Suicidée sera son seul film en Technicolor. Mariée à l'acteur Clark Gable, elle meurt dans un accident d'avion.

  • Carole Lombard (October 6, 1908 – January 16, 1942) was an American actress. She was particularly noted for her comedic roles in several classic films of the 1930s, most notably in the 1936 film My Man Godfrey. She is listed as one of the American Film Institute's greatest stars of all time and was the highest-paid star in Hollywood in the late 1930s, earning around US$500,000 per year (more than five times the salary of the US President).

  • Carole Lombard (born Jane Alice Peters, October 6, 1908 – January 16, 1942) was an American film actress. She was particularly noted for her energetic, often off-beat roles in the screwball comedies of the 1930s. She was the highest-paid star in Hollywood in the late 1930s. She was the third wife of actor Clark Gable.
  • Lombard was born into a wealthy family in Fort Wayne, Indiana, but was raised in Los Angeles by her single mother. At 12, she was recruited by the film director Allan Dwan and made her screen debut in A Perfect Crime (1921). Eager to become an actress, she signed a contract with the Fox Film Corporation at age 16, but mainly played bit parts. She was dropped by Fox after a car accident left a scar on her face. Lombard appeared in 15 short comedies for Mack Sennett between 1927 and 1929, and then began appearing in feature films such as High Voltage and The Racketeer. After a successful appearance in The Arizona Kid (1930), she was signed to a contract with Paramount Pictures.
  • Paramount quickly began casting Lombard as a leading lady, primarily in drama films. Her profile increased when she married William Powell in 1931, but the couple divorced after two years. A turning point in Lombard's career came when she starred in Howard Hawks' pioneering screwball comedy Twentieth Century (1934). The actress found her niche in this genre, and continued to appear in films such as Hands Across the Table (1935) (forming a popular partnership with Fred MacMurray), My Man Godfrey (1936), for which she was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Actress, and Nothing Sacred (1937). At this time, Lombard married "the King of Hollywood", Clark Gable, and the supercouple gained much attention from the media. Keen to win an Oscar, at the end of the decade, Lombard began to move towards more serious roles. Unsuccessful in this aim, she returned to comedy in Alfred Hitchcock's Mr. & Mrs. Smith (1941) and Ernst Lubitsch's To Be or Not to Be (1942)—her final film role.
  • Lombard's career was cut short when she died at the age of 33 in an airplane crash on Mount Potosi, Nevada while returning from a war bond tour. Today, she is remembered as one of the definitive actresses of the screwball comedy genre and American comedy, and ranks among the American Film Institute's greatest female stars of classic Hollywood cinema.
