The Carole Lombard Collection: The NY Times 4/4/06 -- Carole Lombard's Paramount titles have practically vanished from circulation, though she made several of her best films on loan to other studios, which has kept her from slipping from the public eye ("Twentieth Century" at Columbia, "My Man Godfrey" at Universal, "To Be or Not to Be" for the independent producer Alexander Korda). But with the six Paramount films in this set back in circulation, none particularly well known, we can see how Lombard developed at her home studio, from the clotheshorse of the early 1930's to the sophisticated comedian of the latter half of the decade and into the 40's. (She died in a plane crash in 1942, during a Liberty Bond tour; she was all of 33.)
