Who's that girl?

I know I should recognise this actress, but blondes tend to all look the same to me. Carole Lombard?

I found it it Sheila's post on Howard Hawks and have been trying to put a name to the faces ever since. Can you help?

Yes - that is Carole Lombard, pictured with John Barrymore, in a still from Howard Hawks' Twentieth Century.

If you like that shot, here's another one from "Twentieth Century":

(that's "62897.html" at the end, for those who can't see it)

This publicity still was deemed so steamy that the Hays office forbade its distribution -- and this came a few months before the Code was strictly enforced. To my mind, it's the sexiest still Lombard ever made.

Thanks VP (indeed, thanks Sheila for naming names in the first place). Great picture. I hope you don't mind, but it's inspired a post which I think you'll enjoy, if you've not seen it all before :)
