That's Carole Lombard in Paramount p1202-858, from the latter part of 1934, and thanks to Tally Haugen for her work on that photo. Also, keep Tally in your thoughts today, as she's undergoing a bilateral mastectomy to rid herself of four invasive cancer cells.
Now onto today's topic, in which Carole's on the cover of a magazine I heretofore had never heard of:
It's the February 1938 issue of Hollywood Low-Down, published by the Fan Club Federation. I couldn't find out much about the publication, aside that it probably began sometime in 1933 and ceased publishing in 1941. A check of cyberspace revealed these covers, but alas, no traces of copy inside:
The magazine is about 12" high and in good condition, though there is partial tearing to the cover. All the pages are intact, according to the seller.
Bids begin at $12.95, with bidding scheduled to end at 9:55 p.m. (Eastern) on Thursday. You can find out more by visiting http://www.ebay.com/itm/Hollywood-Low-Down-Vintage-Issue-February-1938-Carole-Lombard-Cover-/380583617704?pt=Magazines&hash=item589c8d24a8.
And does Lombard's presence on the cover of a publication sponsored by the Fan Club Federation mean she had a fan club of her own? About a year ago, we wondered if that was the case (http://carole-and-co.livejournal.com/487094.html). Perhaps this issue can provide an answer.
