Hands across the pond, er, table



A wonderful souvenir of what may be Carole Lombard's best film at Paramount is up for auction at eBay. It's an 8-page pressbook issued in Great Britain for the 1935 comedy "Hands Across The Table."



Nearly six years ago, we created an entry showing the pressbook in full (https://carole-and-co.livejournal.com/647820.html). Here are some other pages from this version:






It measures 9.5" x 11.5", is in average condition according to the seller, and has some general wear.

Bidding opens at $19.99, with the auction closing at 6:56 p.m. (Eastern) Saturday. If you've always wanted to own vintage publicity material from a Lombard film, well, here's your chance.
