I've never seen this photo of Carole Lombard and Clark Gable before, but it's from before March 30, 1939. That's because it was used in that morning's Chicago Daily Tribune as it announced their semi-surprise wedding:



Don't see it right away? It's in the upper right-hand corner of the front page:




I'm guessing the Gables' "honeymoon plans" were a ruse. (At least it didn't include Oatman.)

This complete, 42-page issue is said to be in excellent condition, as it was printed for institutional holdings.

You can purchase it for $42.
