Photos of Carole Lombard During the Filming of ‘Sinners in the Sun’ (1932)

Sinners in the Sun is a 1932 American pre-Code romantic drama film directed by Alexander Hall, and starring Carole Lombard, Chester Morris, Adrienne Ames, and Alison Skipworth. It was produced and distributed by Paramount Pictures.

The Times called the film a “display of luxury”, and that its chief merit is the “slickness of it luxurious accompaniment”. They particularly praised the performance of Ames, writing: “Miss Adrienne Ames, though afflicted with dialogue of the utmost crudity, gives a genuine touch of character to the rich young woman whom our hero erroneously marries”.

Mordaunt Hall, in his New York Times review, called it “a lavishly produced, trivial story” and “all more than slightly incredible”. He thought that, while many of the cast gave competent or good performances, Morris was miscast.

These vintage photos captured portraits of Carole Lombard during the filming of Sinners in the Sun in 1932.
