Carole goes Dutch

And we're not referring to how Carole Lombard may have occasionally dated, either. No, this is Lombard appearing on the cover of a magazine in the Netherlands called De Vrouw ("The Woman") sometime in June 1933. Take a look:

It's an attractive picture of Carole, one I've never seen before...but beyond that, I know little. It's apparently a weekly, since there's some sort of number before the word "June" (in the European style of day and date), but I can't make it out specifically. Moreover, is there a story about her inside? I don't know.

I do know, however, that seeing this makes me hungry for some chocolate cookies (or "biscuits"). And it's yet another example of Carole's popularity among European moviegoers.

Anyone who can provide more information about this is kindly asked to share it with fellow Lombard fans...even if it's only whether this cookiemaker is still in business.

Carole and Miss Pettigrew

Hello all!
I just thought I'd post that our beloved Carole is mentioned a few times in the new film, MISS PETTIGREW LIVES FOR A DAY. The film itself is a charming comedy that takes place in London circa 1940. It definitely reminded me of all those lovely 30s/40s comedies that I adore. One of the running jokes involves Carole (and her film VIGIL IN THE NIGHT). It's definitely worth seeing!
