Remembering Carole Landis

Today, July 5, is the 70th anniversary of the tragic death of Carole Landis. She was a popular 1940s actresses and pin-up. During World War 2 she spent more time entertaining troops than any other actress. Sadly she committed suicide at age 29.

I've been a fan of Carole for many years. She was a beautiful woman, a talented actress, and a kind person. You can learn more about her and see tons of photos and videos at ... http://carolelandis.net" target="_blank

Just watched Turnabout (1940) last night. One of her best. Very funny and she wasn't even channeling Betty Grable.
