Carole Landis Out Of The Blue

In 1947 Carole had a supporting role in the comedy Out Of The Blue. She plays Mae Earthleigh, a housewife who bosses her husband around and causes problems for her neighbors. George Brent plays her henpecked husband. Carole said the movie had a "cute story". The cast includes Virginia Mayo, Ann Dvorak, Elizabeth Patterson, Julia Dean, and Turhan Bey. After filing for divorce she went out on a few casual dates with Turhan. Out Of The Blue was directed by Leigh Jason. It was filmed in Los Angeles between February 25 and April 5, 1947. This was the only movie Carole made for Eagle-Lion studios.

Her costumes were designed by her close friend Don Loper. She also went back to her natural brown hair for this role. Out Of The Blue was released on April 21, 1947 and got mostly positive reviews. Louella Parsons said "It's saucy, sexy, and spicy with a solid story on which to base it's chucklesome nonsense". Unfortunately Carole only got fifth billing and most of the publicity went to Virginia Mayo. Out Of The Blue was the final film she made in Hollywood. She signed on to do another movie for Eagle-Lion in 1948 but sadly she died before filming began.
