I have only read a couple of books about Carole Lombard, one, Gable & Lombard, Powell & Harlow, is really a short piece of fluff, I bought for mainly the Harlow content and the other Fireball by Robert Matzen focuses mainly on the plane crash that took her life and the lives of the other passengers aboard the DC-3 and not with her life although we are given an overview of it. Michelle Morgan’s book focuses on her life and career and of course the plane crash is mentioned but she does not go into any gory details, and if that’s what you’re looking for move along.
Once again Morgan does not embellish any rumours or scandals that plagued Carole, and they are mention in a sensitive and respect manner as Morgan deals only with the facts.
And Carole comes to life because of this and wherever possible Morgan has used quotes from Carole herself and this really shows Carole as a human being, from her early days to her untimely death, I found in this book a woman I would love to have known, and perhaps called a friend, a kind and loving woman, but hard-working and tough when she needed to be and she was loyal to fault. We learn how she changed as she got older, how much her fellow actors and her crews loved working with her and no matter what the role she was given, how hard she worked to be the best that she could be.
As with all of Morgan’s work the narrative in Carole Lombard – Twentieth Century Star – flows beautifully and seamlessly through her life.
A wonderful tribute and stunning biography of a woman who had so much more to give, and left not only her husband devastated at her passing.
