More from Mexico...a 'Carol' cover

Earlier this week, we profiled a Carole Lombard cover from the Mexican movie magazine Cine-Mundial; it happened to be the December 1932 issue. But that wasn't Lombard's first appearance on the cover of that magazine.

For that, you'd have to go back more than three years, to Lombard's days as "Carol" while a contract player at Pathe. It's one of the few Lombard covers from the 1920s...specifically, the September 1929 issue:

Look at all those red, blue and yellow dots surrounding her. (For some unexplained reason, I'm suddenly hungry for bread. Wonder why.)

The picture Cine-Mundial used for the cover is one I've never seen before, and gives her an exotic, almost non-American look.

Articles on Clara Bow, Stan Laurel and others (written in Spanish, of course) are inside this 48-page issue, which measures 9" x 12". The seller describes the magazine as in "Good Condition. Some handling and edge wear. Spine a bit worn."

As of this writing, one bid has been made, for $14.99; bidding closes at just after 4:05 p.m. (Eastern) on Monday/ If you've got the bread to buy this magazine, go to http://cgi.ebay.com/1932-CAROLE-LOMBARD-MEXICAN-MAG-Art-Deco-STAN-LAUREL_W0QQitemZ160397024855QQcmdZViewItemQQptZMagazines?hash=item2558685e57.
