Tragically, the beautiful and talented Hollywood actress, Carole Lombard, died in an airplane crash in Nevada, on 16 January 1942.
In addition to starring in some terrific screwball comedies, she was the soulmate of Clark Gable – who was utterly devastated by her tragic death.
Quem di diligunt, adolescens moritur.
