Dramatic lighting – oh yeah, tis the season – Carole Lombard

Three different films and a face that goes from transcendentally beautiful to very eerie, with a little movie magic…

    Ooh, spooky and smokin’! The inimitable, glorious, Carole. Everything looks better in black and white! (I reserve the right to contradict myself!)
    This reminds me of the “crystal balls” gag from Hitchcock’s Family Plot (fabulous Barbara, fantastic Bruce, kooky Karen, toothsome William “Greg Sumner” Devane) as well as Margaret Rutherford’s medium’s ball (if I remember correctly) in Blithe Spirit. Wait, don’t fall asleep! Fine images, Ms L.

    That top photo! There was a still of CL in that outfit in a film photo book my mother had. I remember thinking she looked like some supernatural creature and I could never decide if she was beautiful or terrifying. Now I’d say definitely both.
