Celebrate Carole with TCM goodies

Like what you see? It's from Turner Classic Movies, celebrating Carole Lombard's status as Star of the Month for October (http://community.livejournal.com/carole_and_co/119463.html). And the good news is that you can get it as a wallpaper/screensaver for your computer -- simply go to http://www.tcm.com/funstuff/screenwall/?cid=211506&begin=, and download for either PC or Mac. (The site also has wallpaper for the film "Swing High, Swing Low.")

TCM has some other Lombard-related items in its "Fun Stuff" area. How about an e-card using poster work from Carole's Columbia pre-Code, "Virtue"? It's there at http://www.tcm.com/ecard/category/?cid=211601&begin=; a card from "In Name Only" is also available.

A Lombard profile from TCM, with links to profiles on the films being shown, can be found at http://www.tcm.com/thismonth/article/?cid=208614, which also features a clip of Carole in "Nothing Sacred" (http://www.tcm.com/mediaroom/index/?cid=211815); the latter page also links to trailers and clips from "Nothing Sacred," "My Man Godfrey" and "To Be Or Not To Be."

All in all, lots of Lombard love from TCM, though I haven't yet seen its on-air "Star of the Month" promo for her.
