Nearly two weeks ago, we ran a batch of Carole Lombard and Clark Gable photos, courtesy of Tally Haugen and what she calls "the box," a huge assortment of Carole clippings from newspapers and magazines (http://carole-and-co.livejournal.com/519294.html). Now, some more images of the famed couple, beginning with the pic above, where Clark frankly looks rather unenthusiastic. Had he just read the script for "Parnell"?
I'm guessing this next one comes from Feg Murray's movie-related Sunday comic "Seein' Stars":
Next, Clark and Carole with Jack Benny -- but from the caption, referring to Lombard in the past tense, it's obviously from February or March of 1942, as Hollywood magazine salutes "the memory of a truly great person":
For something a bit happier, check this image out, from page 15 of some magazine:
In part 1 of "the box" entry, we ran a photo of Carole and "mighty-eared Cineman" Clark (as Time labeled him) at Samuel Goldwyn's Greek war relief benefit in early 1941. This time around, they're joined by Lombard's "Now And Forever" co-star, Shirley Temple (soon to enter her rather awkward teen years, though she would be sporadically successful later in the '40s), Myrna Loy and Tyrone Power:
Not sure where (or when) this one is from:
Finally, Clark and Carole at the racetrack, and the caption (which appears to be from the New York Daily News) asks if they had Stagehand, the winner of the Santa Anita Derby (which took place on Feb. 22, 1938). From the looks on their faces, we're not so sure...
More Clark and Carole down the road.
