|Powell & Lombard, 1936|
22-year old Carole Lombard, born in Fort Wayne, Indiana, marries 38-year old William Powell.
Lombard, known as the “screwball of the silver screen” is probably best remembered for being the wife of Clark Gable. Her marriage to Powell only lasted a couple of years and she obtained a Carson City, Nevada divorce in 1933. It was called the “highest profile celebrity divorce in Carson City history.” She married Clark Gable in 1939.
Lombard died in a plane crash in 1942 outside of Las Vegas after doing a war bond rally in her home state of Indiana.
P.S. Happy Birthday to my Aunt Libby, born June 26, 1931!!
