For Bastille Day, Lombard en francais

Since today is Bastille Day, we thought we'd celebrate by showing some French-language items picturing Carole Lombard, complementing those we presented last year (http://community.livejournal.com/carole_and_co/49256.html).

First, here's Carole on the cover of Confidences, a French-based publication, specifically its October 28, 1938 issue:

The movie magazine Le Film Complet ran Lombard on its cover at least twice:

Note the respective publication dates -- March 4, 1937 and Sept. 13, 1938 -- for "Love Before Breakfast" and "Nothing Sacred" (the latter's French title altered to "The Joyous Suicide"!). There was about a 10- to 12-month gap between premieres of Hollywood films in the U.S. and in Europe.

Finally, French-language posters of the two dance films Carole made with George Raft, "Bolero" and "Rumba":

Magnifique? Certainment! (Although the only way Lombard's hair would ever get that red would be due to some sort of cosmetology mishap.)
