Beauty Icon: Hitchcock Blondes

Carole Lombard in Mr. and Mrs. Smith (1941)
A petite blonde with piercing eyes, Lombard is believed to have ignited the director's obsession with the frosty blonde archetype when she played Ann in this very un-Hitchcock screwball relationship comedy. The film was remade in the mid-aughts with Angelina Jolie taking on Lombard's role, and Brad Pitt, her Mr. Smith.
