Merry Christmas!

I trust you've had a merry and more importantly a safe Christmas as we enter the final week of this most challenging of years. The picture above is a trade ad from Christmas 1937 promoting Carole Lombard's final film for Paramount, "True Confession," and I thought I'd provide a few more examples of Lombard holiday cheer.

Two photos of Carole from her Mack Sennett years; holiday greetings from Lombard in both German and Hungarian; and a plaque from Carole and Clark Gable for a gift to Jean Garceau and her husband in 1941.

We'll close with the greatest holiday song of the rock' n' roll era, "Christmas (Baby Please Come Home)" by Darlene Love. This now is 57 years old, and still sounds amazingly fresh. A merry Christmas to all.
