The "Carole Lombard: The Profane Angel" Blogathon Has Arrived!

After months of waiting, the Carole Lombard: The Profane Angel Blogathon has at last arrived!!!For the next three days, many of us Classic Movie Bloggers will be honoring the memory of the "Queen of Screwball," the "Profane Angel," the "Hoosier Tornado," the one and only: Carole Lombard. Taken from us far to soon, this revolutionary actress is beloved by many and it is because of her legacy to film that Crystal of In the Good Old Days of Classic Hollywood and I are honoring her on the 75th anniversary of her death. With posts ranging from her films, her husbands, her legacy, and her Patriotism, it promises to be an amazing three days. So without further ado, THE POSTS:
