    Though having many great roles as an actor she was also in one of the worst
    films ever made

    What an extraordinary magnetic personality and comedic lady whom I
    happened to know through family connections with the screenwriter Waldo Salt.
    Though having many great roles as an actor she was also in one of the worst
    films ever made “Lombard & Gable”. When I told Jill that I passed a movie theatre
    that had a sign on the ticket booth of Lombard & Gable that read “Absolutely
    No Monies Refunded For This Show” we had a grand laugh .
