Carole Lombard (1908 - 1942)
Her mother, Bess Peters, was a member of the Baha’i faith, and Lombard formally declared in 1938.
The undisputed queen of 1930s screwball comedy, she died in a fiery crash in 1942 when her plane slammed into Table Rock Mountain in Nevada while returning from a war-bond drive appearance in Indianapolis.
She was only 33.
