Read in September, 1975

My two childhood heroines were Elizabeth I and Carole Lombard. I loved that Carole Lombard was a tough broad and also funny, beautiful, generous, and kind.

I read this when I was ten and still own it, along with The Films of Carole Lombard by Frederick Ott and Carole Lombard by ET's Leonard Maltin. Oddly, I own no books about Elizabeth I (but I've seen all the various PBS and HBO miniseries).

My Man Godfrey is not only a fabulous movie but her way of helping her first husband, William Powell, get over the death of his girlfriend Jean Harlow and resurrect his career. How generous is that?
