Rare DS, one page both sides, 4.75 x 8, March 25, 1937. State of California-Department of Motor Vehicles duplicate operator's application filled out in Lombard's hand and signed on the front and back in black ink. The 28-year-old actress has reapplied for her license noting that the first one was stolen. On the front side, below her signature, Lombard lists her address (5451 Marathon, Hollywood), height (5´-5.5″), weight (112 lb.), eye (blue) and hair color (blond), and answers several questions regarding her health and driving ability; she pens her parents' names on the reverse below her second signature. In fine condition. Following a new $450,000 deal with Paramount Pictures, Lombard became the highest-paid star in Hollywood in 1937, acting in three films that year: Swing High, Swing Low; Nothing Sacred; and True Confession. Just a few years later, at the age of 33, Lombard and twenty-one others, including her mother, tragically perished in a plane crash near Nevada's Potosi Mountain. A one-of-a-kind format signed by an adored Hollywood actress who remains highly sought after.
