Isn't that Swede?

Not long ago, we had an entry about Carole Lombard's appearance on the cover of a 1934 Swedish fashion magazine (http://community.livejournal.com/carole_and_co/194386.html). Two years later, Lombard appeared on the cover of another Swedish publication, this one apparently specializing in movies, because its title was Film Bilden.

It had only 24 pages, but more than compensated through sheer size -- each page measured a whopping 13 1/2" by 10". And Lombard's cover photo showed her in tennis whites, stretching out those magnificent legs of hers, relaxing after a hard-fought match, cigarette in hand (making it one of the rare instances where a photo of Carole appears dated).

The magazine was so large that the seller couldn't fit it into one picture. Therefore, I've had to use two separate shots and try to blend them into one...

Not bad. Now what about that caption? It appears to say somethimg about her as both a tennis player and actress. (Precisely what, I'll leave for you folks fluent in Swedish to describe.)

Inside, there are some film reviews, as well as a feature on Robert Taylor, who was rapidly becoming as popular overseas as he was with American audiences.

If you'd like to make this a part of your collection -- and if you're a Carole collector, why wouldn't you? -- simply go to http://cgi.ebay.com/Rare-CAROLE-LOMBARD-ROBERT-TAYLOR-Swedish-Mag-1936_W0QQitemZ310135940427QQcmdZViewItemQQptZLH_DefaultDomain_0?hash=item310135940427&_trksid=p3286.c0.m14&_trkparms=66%3A2%7C65%3A1%7C39%3A1%7C240%3A1318.
