Two fierce dames

Good friends Gloria Swanson and Carole Lombard on a movie set in the early 1940s. Can you imagine what a meeting between these two larger than life personalities must have been like? It must have been a riot and a party like no other!


  1. What I wouldn't give to have been able to party with these two!!! Fabulous. Thanks for the blog award, too. I'm slowly working my way through all my other distractions and hope to get to it SOON. In the mean-time, REALLY appreciate it and I'm so glad you like the blog! xoxo

  2. Such style - haven't seen any old film in ages.

  3. BaronessVonVintage - I know! Oh, to have been a fly on the wall... Or better yet, a fellow fierce dame back in the 1930s/1940s! No problem at all about the blog award, you totally deserve it!

    FairyFiligree - Indeed! Gloria especially is perfection in the photo.

  4. Actually, I believe this pic is from the mid-1930s, with Swanson visiting Lombard on the set of Carole's latest film, "Hands Across The Table."

    I'm guessing they met in the late 1920s, when both were at Pathe.
