Celebrating our sixth

carole lombard p1202-646

It was six years ago today that a brief item found its way onto the blogosphere.

carole lombard carole & co. first entry

Since that wasn't much, another item (one with pictures) quickly followed:

I don't know whether this site can be considered a mighty oak, but "Carole & Co." certainly has grown considerably from those two little acorns. This entry is our 2,343rd in its 2,193-day history -- slightly more than one per day -- and we have 240 members. More importantly, we've contributed our share in researching Lombard's life and times, separating the wheat from the chaff, and providing readers with a glimpse of what classic Hollywood was really like. (We've also alerted fans to all sorts of Carole-related memorabilia, from publicity stills -- that's Paramount p1202-646 at the top of the entry -- to vintage fan magazines, clothing items and more.)

It's been a delight to work on each day, and it's become an integral part of me. If I've created a number of new Lombard fans, that's been a bonus (although just by watching Carole's films and learning about her life, the lady can win fans without any help from me, thank you).

Again, thanks for your support, and I hope to contribute many more years to this site.

The latest LiveJournal header, Paramount p1202-103, features Carole in the equestrian outfit she wore while making the 1931 film "I Take This Woman" with Gary Cooper.
