In my seemingly endless search, hoping to find even one "Screwball Comedy" from the 1930s that really appeals to me, I optimistically took another chance and checked out this promising-looking collection of 6 "Carole Lombard" glamour vehicles from Hollywood's bygone days.

After giving each one of these moldie-oldies a fair enough viewing - I'm sorry to say that (as I glumly trudged through yet more movie-mediocrity from a literal "Screwball Comedy" wasteland) my endless search in hopes of finding that one, priceless, be-all/end-all "Screwball" gem still carries on.

Of course, when it came to the likes of Carole Lombard, herself, I certainly had no complaints, at all.

Forever dressed in the highest of chic fashions, 1930's style - Carole certainly possessed plenty of beauty, wit and charm to go around - But, alas, the absolutely terrible storylines of these trite "Boy-Meets-Girl" situations were just too corny, contrived and predictable for words.

*Note* - At the absolute height of her popularity, Carole Lombard (36 at the time) was tragically killed in a plane crash in the year 1942.
