More 'Marriage In Transit,' this time in French

In yesterday's entry, we noted Carole Lombard's first film under her name, "Marriage In Transit," has been presumed lost since a first at the Fox archives in 1937. But one place it might be uncovered is...France.

That's because in January 1926, the magazine Le Film Complet did a two-page spread on it. Here's proof:

The cover is unrelated to the movie:

It's 16 pages, measuring 9" x 6".

Interested in this ultra-rarity? Then go to https://www.ebay.com/itm/MARRIAGE-IN-TRANSIT-CAROL-LOMBARD-1926-FRENCH-MOVIE-MAGAZINE/352577677427?hash=item5217446873:g:cU8AAOSwYj9b5uM8:rk:16:pf:0. The price is $9.99. Who knows? Someday we may track down a print of the film, too.
