For us, a happy ending (Picture Play, June 1934: Found -- A Happy Star)

carole lombard p1202-1501a

Nearly two years ago, we were doing some Carole Lombard sleuthing over a fan magazine story for which we only had the initial page, entitled "Found -- A Happy Star" (http://carole-and-co.livejournal.com/399423.html). Searches turned into a dead end, so we sadly placed it in our figurative "cold case" file.

The good news is that this article is now available in its entirety, as it was published in the June 1934 issue of Picture Play, part of a nearly five-year run of the magazine now available online. (The reference to "Carol" as her first name should have been a tip-off that it ran in Picture Play, but I may not have been aware of that at the time.)

It's a charming piece, where Lombard admits that thanks to her profession, she's happy and comfortable; no cynical Tinseltown brooding for her. (And from what we know about Carole virtually all of this "as told to" story rings true.) So here's Lombard, presumably interviewed slightly before "Twentieth Century," her breakthrough film, was released:

We're happy to have found this, yet another example of why Lombard was among the best-loved stars of her time.
