Saturday’s post: Linda Darnell
TCM has a great run of Carole Lombard movies airing all day Sunday when the Summer Under the Stars tribute turns to 24 hours of Lombard.
Lots of rare early stuff in the morning before the big titles take over in the late afternoon and evening. Nice to see screwball essential My Man Godfrey get the prime 8 pm slot and To Be or Not To Be before that is, well, it’s the funniest Nazi movie I’ve ever seen–watch that one and remember, it was made in 1942!
The day is just packed with all-time classics and little seen gems, this is what Summer Under the Stars is all about:

From one of the less common Gallaher sets of tobacco cards here’s today’s star, Carole Lombard, on a 1935 Gallaher Signed Portraits of Famous Stars tobacco card:
- You want all Carole, you can’t do any better than Carole & Co., which I send you too with small hopes of your making it back here today!
- We’ve gone there before and we’ll return now because I love his lists, Monty at All Good Things posts My Favorite Carole Lombard Movies. Earlier this year he also wrote Why Carole Lombard Is My Favorite Actress
- Just a few weeks ago Carole Lombard topped the poll of quintessential 1930’s actresses at Hollywood Dreamland; C.K. Dexter Haven at that same site named Carole Lombard Favorite Actress #5 some time back
- Katie Richardson at Obscure Film Classics posted The Dramatic Carole Lombard which gives us a little different look at the screwball queen
- Nobody photographed like Carole Lombard, she was made for the camera, and Light and Shadow: Carole Lombard at Film Noir Photos goes a long ways towards proving that statement
