  Wisconsin born Frances Lillian Mary Ridste dropped out of school at 15, and bravely set forth on a path to show business. After saving 100 dollars, going blonde, and changing her name to Carole Landis (for her favorite actress, Carole Lombard), she moved to Hollywood. There she gained a measure of success in the cinema which, unsurprisingly, she could not find in her love life. At just 29 she took her own life.

Beautiful tribute to another lost Hollywood soul, David. I read somewhere that she logged more travel miles entertaining the WWII troops than any other performer besides Bob Hope. I especially like the smile and sunlight effect here. :clap: :clap: :clap: :thumbup: :thumbup: :thumbup:

Thanks for that Mike .. couldn't find many candid photos, so I tried for a sort of (hopefully appropriate) pin-up style :grin:
