Covering Carole in a continental manner

carole lombard kinorevue czech 1938a

As we've previously seen, Carole Lombard was a popular magazine cover subject not only in North America, but in Europe, too. As proof, here she is gracing a 1938 issue of the Czechoslovakian publication Kinorevue, a magazine that continued into at least 1939 despite Germany's annexation of the country, as this cover of Carole and James Stewart is indicative:

The '38 magazine is being auctioned at eBay; it measures 10.5" x 7.5" and has 20 pages, and according to the seller is in very good condition. The minimum bid is $9.99, and bidding is set to close at 6:39 p.m. (Eastern) Wednesday. Interested, or merely want to Czech it out (sorry, couldn't resist)?

That same seller has two more Lombard mags available, both from Belgium earlier that decade and sold as a combo.

And finally, a reminder to those of you in the Los Angeles area:

loretta young centennial birthday tribute 00a

The Loretta Young Centennial Birthday Tribute (belated though it may be) is set for tonight at the Alex Theatre in Glendale. The life and achievements of this Hollywood legend will be saluted through memorabilia, film clips and more, and it promises to be plenty of fun. And for those of you who do go, thank Linda Lewis (Loretta's daughter-in-law) for making this possible.
