Carole Lombard offers a fetching come-hither look -- in a swimsuit, no less -- on the cover of the July 1935 Rexall magazine. The alliance of local drug stores, dominant in the pharmaceutical industry, published this monthly; copies were sent to scores of pharmacies. This went to a drug store in Hemlock, Mich., about 15 miles west of Saginaw. (I visited relatives in Saginaw in the summer of 1963, about the time I turned eight.)
The cover referred to an analysis of Lombard's handwriting. What did the magazine learn?
