I live by a man’s code, designed to fit a man’s world, yet at the same time I never forget that a woman’s first job is to choose the right shade of lipstick.

Carole Lombard was born in Fort Wayne, Indiana. She was an American film actress. She was particularly noted for her highly neurotic, energetic and often off-beat roles in the screwball comedies of the 1930s. She was the highest-paid star in Hollywood in the late 1930s. In October 1924, at the age of 16, she signed a contract with the Fox Film Corporation, and got her first break the following year opposite Edmund Lowe in the successful drama Marriage in Transit. She appeared in 15 short films of Pathé Exchange between September 1927 and March 1929, and then began appearing in feature films such as High Voltage and The Racketeer. She began appearing in comedies with William Powell such as Man of the World and Ladies Man, and married him in June 1931. Her role as a nurse in Vigil in the Night was her most notable attempt to win an Oscar but didn't receive a nomination. She returned to comedy in Alfred Hitchcock's Mr. & Mrs. Smith in 1941. Lombard's career was cut short when she died at the age of 33 in an aircraft crash on Mount Potosi, Nevada while returning from a World War II War Bond tour.
