That's Carole Lombard and Una Merkel in a jailhouse scene from "True Confession." This weekend, both of them -- as well as several dozen of their fabulously funny female colleagues -- were feted by the blogosphere in something appropriately named the "Funny Lady Blogathon," sponsored by the site Movies Silently.
For some reason, I declined to participate...but as my way of compensating, I thought I'd let people know about it, so they can read many of the fine entries. (As of now, 38 have been received, with four more reportedly on the way.)
Subjects range from Marion Davies and Clara Bow in the silent era...
...Thelma Todd and Rosalind Russell in the classic era...
...to Shirley MacLaine and Mary Tyler Moore in the modern era:
