    Carol Lombard "Old Gold" Full Color Advertising Sign, 31" x 42", 1934, easel-backed. This is a lovely sign featuring a sultry Carol Lombard with a cigarette in her right hand. In the lower left, the sign has "Carol Lombard in 'Now and Forever' her latest Paramount picture".

    Carole Lombard (1908-1942), born Jane Alice Peters in Fort Wayne, Indiana, was an Oscar-nominated American actress, particularly noted for her comedic roles in several classic films of the 1930s.

    When the United States entered World War II at the end of 1941, Lombard traveled to her home state of Indiana for a war bond rally. On the morning of Friday, January 16, 1942, Lombard and her mother boarded a Trans World Airlines DC-3 airplane to return to California. The plane crashed into "Double Up Peak" 32 miles southwest of Las Vegas. Lombard and the other 43 passengers were killed.
    After her death at the age of thirty-three, Lombard's husband, Clark Gable, was inconsolable and devastated by his loss. He joined the United States Army Air Forces, serving as a gunner on a bomber on combat missions over Europe.
