Carole packs a punch in Danish (again)



"Nothing Sacred," Carole Lombard's Technicolor laughfest, was popular across the globe, no matter what language audiences spoke. One of those languages was Danish, as we discovered two months ago when a program that may have been from a 1948 re-release was advertised on eBay (https://carole-and-co.livejournal.com/966564.html).



Apparently, another program was issued for its initial Danish release in 1938, with this delightful illustration of Carole fighting Fredric March:



The United Artists logo in the lower right-hand corner pinpoints when it was first released; a decade later, the film was in the public domain.

There are several other pages, all in Danish of course (a language I didn't know two months ago and don't know now), along with photos from the movie:








It's in good condition, with all pages present.

This vintage program sells for $11.39; if you want it, go to https://www.ebay.com/itm/Nothing-Sacred-Carole-Lombard-Fredric-March-1937-Vtg-Old-Danish-Movie-Program/183722534865?hash=item2ac6b767d1:g:O7QAAOSw~Shcg~rz.

And a reminder for those of you in most American states -- set your clocks ahead one hour tonight for Daylight Saving Time.
