A fashionable portrait of Mrs. Smith



Carole Lombard's next-to-last film, "Mr. & Mrs. Smith," not only marked her return to comedy but the opportunity to show off her well-known fashion sense for the first time in a while. Unlike her two previous movies, she didn't wear a nurse's outfit ("Vigil In The Night") or a waitress ("They Knew What They Wanted"); here, she was a comfortable, affluent Manhattan housewife whose upscale world turns upside down.
