A Lombard starter kit

So you say you're sort of a neophyte when it comes to Carole Lombard, that you've just begun learning about her life and career? Well. you've come to the right place -- or should I say, one of the right places (CaroleLombard.org is an equally helpful site).

But if you want to immerse yourself in Lombardiana, something's just come up on eBay that will help you. I unofficially call it a "Lombard starter kit," because it has all sorts of goodies related to Carole.

* Eight movies on DVD -- the six films in the "Glamour Collection" (including "Hands Across The Table," shown below), plus "My Man Godfrey" and "Mr. & Mrs. Smith";

* Three hardcover books -- "Screwball" by Larry Swindell, "Gable & Lombard" by Warren G. Harris and "Carole Lombard: The Hoosier Tornado" by Wes D. Gehring;

* One softcover book, "The Films Of Carole Lombard" by Frederick W. Ott;

* And in the words of the seller, "Extensive magazine cutouts, pictures of birthplace, and photos of Carole Lombard and her life."

Here's what the collection looks like:

Looks pretty impressive, assuming everything is in good condition.

This will be on auction at eBay through about 1:50 p.m. (Eastern) Wednesday; as I write this, only one bid has been made, for $9.99, but frankly, I expect this to go considerably higher (by itself, "Screwball" normally auctions for several times that amount). If you want to try your luck, go to http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=380125797789.
