Gentlemen Prefer Blondes: Cary Grant, Clark Gable, Ricardo Cortez
I wish Carole Lombard would receive some of the attention lavished on Marilyn Monroe. They were so alike: blond, beautiful, sexy and at their best in comedy. They married famous men, and they died tragically young. The Monroe legend grows. Do people remember Lombard?
She was a better actress than Monroe, left more classic films, her artistry lives, and her best films continue to deliver joy. She threw herself exuberantly into parts and wasn’t afraid to look foolish for a laugh. In many ways, she served as an inspiration to Lucille Ball. – Hal Boedeker
