Something to quickly 'Digest'

And for Carole Lombard fans, a tasty treat. We're referring to the March 2006 issue of Architectural Digest, the annual "Hollywood at home" issue and the one with Audrey Hepburn on the cover:

Audrey is indeed lovely, and you can see photos of the homes she and Mel Ferrer had in Beverly Hills and Malibu, but for Lombard fans, the selling point is an entry on her famed Hollywood Boulevard home, which was decorated by actor-turned-designer William Haines (his second assignment of note after having won plaudits for his work on Joan Crawford's house).

First, we see Lombard in her living room:

At first glance, the next photo makes it appear as if Carole has mysteriously shrunk to about two feet tall, but never fear. That's not a chair that's engulfing her, that's a bed. Well played, Mr. Haines:

Other stars featured in this issue include Ava Gardner, Bette Davis, Robert Mitchum, Doris Day, Jack Lemmon and Cary Grant.

Want it? Better hurry. You can buy it for $29.95, but it will only be up until 11:21 a.m. (Eastern) today. Go to http://cgi.ebay.com/ARCHITECTURAL-DIGEST-Audrey-Hepburn-Carole-Lombard-Deco-/360280126921?pt=Magazines.

As eBay items go, that's eat-and-run, but for Lombard lovers, the flavor on this would be long-lasting.
