She's a small-town librarian; he's a confidence man from the big city who wants to know her better. We know this scene as being from "No Man Of Her Own," the only film Carole Lombard would make with future second husband Clark Gable. But if you saw this movie in Spain, or some other Spanish-speaking country, you would know it as...

..."Casada Por Azar," which translated into English reads "Married By Chance" (a more descriptive title for the film, in my opinion, but since this was derived from a book written by Val Lewton titled "No Bed Of Her Own," probably not considered). Above is the cover for a Spanish-language photoplay of the movie; it's 72 pages, including eight pages of pictures such as these:

The magazine measures 6.1" x 8.5"; the seller (from Barcelona) describes it as being in "very good" condition -- "The cover shows creases, some restored missing paper, something handwritten and some stains. The inner pages are yellowed, with some minor brown stains, and some of them are tape restored along edges. Slight wear along edges of the cover and the back, with some minor missing paper, tape restored inside. Some minor rests of dirt."

It's an interesting artifact from the film, and one would think some Gable or Lombard fan would want it for their collection. The item is selling for $32.
