It's time to celebrate!

Celebrate what, you say? Well, if you're a Carole Lombard fan you probably know, but just in case you don't, some hints...

From Alabama to Minnesota, Vermont to Pennsylvania (and in the 46 other states, and indeed around the world), classic movie buffs are celebrating the 102nd anniversary of Carole Lombard's birth. If you are in the U.S. and have Turner Classic Movies, you can watch seven of her movies today, beginning at 9:30 a.m. (Eastern).

and Clark Gable:

We remember her devotion to her family:

We remember her love of sports, both as an athlete and as a fan:

Happy 102nd, Carole Lombard!
