Lombard and Laughton: '32 - '33

Fell in love with Carole Lombard when I saw Virtue (made on a loan-out to Columbia) and White Woman on a double bill at Film Forum, in the summer before 9/11, during one of their many pre-Code retrospectives.  Unfortunately, '33's White Woman didn't make the cut in 2013's ode to that year at the same venue.  Virtue finally came out on DVD recently, but White Woman remains m.i.a. on any home media format.  With megalomaniacal Charles Laughton once again controlling a jungle empire, it would pair pretty well with the previous year's Island of Lost Souls.
