“You ought to see the map for my face in the Makeup Department.
It looks like a landscape of the moon.”

I’ve been dying to post this amazing picture of La Lombard for ages and now I get my chance. Dorothy over at the British Film Institue made Carole’s Cherry Pie on Sunday for her housemates. I won’t say what she wrote on the feedback form about spitting cherry pips and the French, but by all accounts the pie was quite a hit. We may have to tinker with the sugar measurements though as like my pa, a couple of the housemates found the pie a little too sweet.

I do like the reasoning behind Dorothy’s selection of her film star persona for the blog – she says, that just like La Lamour, it is her dream to be torn between the love of two song and dance men.

By the way, if you are a fan of Carole Lombard and you haven’t paid a visit to I heartily recommend it. My current favourite film star website.
