Attack of the giant Carole Lombard (pictures)

In Carole Lombard's day, this was state-of-the-art in terms of appearing "giant size" in the movies: Charlotte Henry in the 1933 Paramount "Alice In Wonderland," realizing she's much too big to approach the Duchess' house. Fortunately, all it took for her was a bite of a mushroom to bring her down to the proper scale.

While Carole never appeared larger than life in the movies, there are several places in cyberspace where you can find images of her and other classic era stars blown up to sizes bigger than your usual publicity still...yet with remarkable clarity. They're well worth checking out -- and downloading.

One site is Dr. Macro's High Quality Movie Scans (http://www.doctormacro.info/), which has an eclectic list of galleries of many stars (including Lombard), film clips, short subjects and even wallpapers. It's also updated regularly, so the collection continually grows. Well worth checking out.

Another site, "Simply Classics" (http://www.simplyclassics.net/index2.html), has a huge array of pictures from the Golden Age. You have to register to use the site, but it's worth it. The Lombard gallery has more than 250 images of her -- publicity stills, movie pictures and even a few informal shots.

Here are a few images of Lombard from both sites. Click on them two times to see just how big and beautiful they are:
