Stage Name

Birth Name

Carole Lombard Jane Alice Peters

    After moving to California, Carole was spotted playing baseball by film director Allan Dawn and signed to a one picture contract in 1921 when she was just twelve years old. The film was called 'A PERFECT CRIME'. In 1926, an auto accident scarred the left side of her face, which was repaired by plastic surgery. She would make two special dance films of note 'Bolero (1934) and Rumba (1935.)' Carole Lombard was also selected as one of the Top 25 Hollywood Female Legends by AFI in 1942.

    On January 16, 1942, Carole, her mother, and 20 other passengers all perished when their plane went down outside of Las Vegas, Nevada.
