Carole, Was one of the most beautiful women in Hollywood it's a pity she didn't get better roles.


With all the men she had been involved with, Carole was kinda like a female Scott Brady/Howard Hughes.

I think that carole landis was the most beautiful girl in the world and in all history of the girls in hollywood.I adore her.

Norman WallAug 22, 2008

Carole Landis must have been the most under-valued actress in Hollywood. She had everything it took to be a great movie star. Why she wasn`t and left to do B films shames Hollywood.

CaroleJun 1, 2008

Carole was a goddess with a gorgeous face and a perfect body. It`s not hard to see why every man in Hollywood wanted her. They were attracted by her looks but they fell in love with her heart.
