From December 1941:
Through these tense days, Carole Lombard has certainly kept the crew and cast on the stage of “To Be Or Not To Be”in a howling good humor with all her gags.
When I asked her what she’d do if she caught a Japanese parachutist landing on her ranch, she said, “Let ’em come! Pappy and I haven’t been banging away at ducks and skeets all these years for nothing. We’ve put the ranch on a wartime basis, sold a couple of horses, and growing vegetables instead of alfalfa.” Atta girl, Carole!
And very soon, too, you’ll be seeing Carole and Clark stumping the country, selling war bonds.
Well, only Carole…..sadly….
