This study of Hollywoods favorite screwball comedienne begins on the eve of her death. Following a successful war bonds tour, she awaits word in an Indianapolis hotel room to see if shes been successful in securing plane reservations for a flight back to Los Angeles. Shes anxious to get home, because she suspects that her husband, Clark Gable, is cheating on her. Drawing liberally upon her legendary sailors vocabulary, Ms. Lombard talks about her tragic affair with singer Russ Columbo, ex-husband William Powell, as well as George Raft, Gary Cooper, Joseph P. Kennedy and, of course, David O. Selznick and her ill-fated attempt to secure the role of Scarlett OHara in GONE WITH THE WIND. Michael B. Druxmans LOMBARD is not a depressing play of approaching doom. It is a warm, funny story of a woman -- the highest paid film actress of her day -- who was a fighter, both in her career and personal life.
