A Marriage of Equals

Once again Hollywood Heyday comes up trumps with Carole Lombard the feminist 

Something about photos of Lombard and Gable together suggest that theirs was a very egalitarian marriage, and the Heyday article just confirms my suspicion that Lombard would never simper to any man, even Gable. She's a damned admirable woman and Mr Gable was lucky to have her and, judging from these "candid" off-set photos, he knew it.

Damned STRAIGHT! They give me hope for marriage yet, along with Bogey and Bacall, and of course the ultimate in cool couples, Newman and Woodward

If you like Lombard, you'll love my site, "Carole & Co.," which is dedicated to her in particular and classic Hollywood in general. We've been up since June 2007, approaching 1,000 entries with all sorts of rare photos. Please check us out at
