These lobby cards were 'Made For Each Other'



Carole Lombard closed out 1938 -- the subject of a current blogathon -- by filming "Made For Each Other" with up-and-coming James Stewart at Selznick International, although this blend of comedy and drama (with far more emphasis on the latter) would be released until early 1939.

Three vintage lobby cards from the film are now available at eBay. First, this one:



It's 11" x 14" and in excellent condition. You can purchase it for $320 or make an offer. Get additional information at https://www.ebay.com/itm/MADE-FOR-EACH-OTHER-1939-ORIGINAL-LOBBY-CARD-CAROLE-LOMBARD-JAMES-STEWART/192796936640?hash=item2ce397c9c0:g:EzYAAOSwPrdcQ8B5:rk:2:pf:0.

Finally, this moderately inexpensive card:



Why is it selling for $220, a hundred bucks less than the others? Probably because it's from a 1944 reissue (note the typography is different from the other two), although it's in excellent condition as well.
