Carole Lombard (born Jane Alice Peters; October 06,1908 – January 16,1942) is an American film actress. She is particularly not it for her energetic,often caff-beat roles in the screwball comedies o the 1930's. She is the theistic-eyed star in Hollywood in the late 1930's.Carole Lombard was born as Jane Alice Peters on October 06,1908 in Fort Wayne,Indiana,United States of America.Both her parents,Frederick Christian Peters and Elizabeth Jayne "Bessie" (Knight) Peters,came from wealthy family.Born third of her parents' three children she had two elder brothers; Frederick Charles and John Stuart Peters.Her parents divorced in 1916 and her mother took the family on a trip out West. While there they decided to settle down in the Los Angeles area. After being spotted playing baseball in the street with the neighborhood boys by a film director, Carole was signed to a one-picture contract in 1921 when she was 12. The film in question was A Perfect Crime (1921). Although she tried for other acting jobs, she would not be seen onscreen again for four years. She returned to a normal life, going to school and participating in athletics, excelling in track and field. By age 15 she had had enough of school, though, and quit. She joined a theater troupe and played in several stage shows, which were for the most part nothing to write home about.In 1925 she passed a screen test and was signed to a contract with Fox Films. Her first role as a Fox player was Hearts and Spurs (1925), in which she had the lead. Right after that film she appeared in a western called Durand of the Bad Lands (1925).Carole Lombard was born Jane Alice Peters in Fort Wayne,Indiana,United States of America on October 06,1908.Her last film was in 1942, when she played Maria Tura opposite Jack Benny in To Be or Not to Be (1942).Tragically, she didn't live to see its release. The film was completed in 1941 just at the time the US entered World War II, and was subsequently held back for release until 1942. Meanwhile, Carole went home to Indiana for a war bond rally. On January 16, 1942,Carole,her mother, and 20 other people were flying back to California when the plane went down outside of Las Vegas, Nevada.All aboard perished.The highly acclaimed actress was dead at the age of 33 years and few have been able to match her talents since.Carole Lombard, the actress, was born. In early 1927 she was tested by the Mack Sennet Studio, who put her under contract, only this time it was a comedy, not a spy film. Lombard became the top comedienne at the studio as she molded herself into the comedy life.Paul Stei,as Pathe director, saw her in a Sennet comedy and immediately put her under contract for $150 a week. Several films later she took a side step when director,Cecil B. DeMille called for her and then changed his mind. When she left Pathe in 1930 at the age of 18 she returned to FOX. She soon signed with Paramount for $300 a week but after 6 years was earning the sum of $35,000 a week! In October 1930 she met William Powell and then eight months later they were married on the day of June 26,1931.
