Carole Lombard: The Hoosier Tornado
In this inaugural volume in the Indiana Historical Society Press's Indiana Biography series, Wes D. Gehring, a noted authority on film comedy, examines Lombard's legacy, focusing on both the public and private figure from her early days as merely beautiful window dressing in Mack Sennett silent films, to her development as the leading motion-picture comedienne of her time, to her tragic death in a January 1942 plane crash.
