Carole and her clippings

Above is one of four Carole Lombard clippings -- all from fan magazines -- for sale at eBay, each for $4.99. This first clipping is from sometime in 1936, probably before the fall, because while it mentions hwr working with ex-husband William Powell in "My Man Godfrey," it says nothing about her scintillating performance, which would earn her an Academy Award nomination. (For some reason, Lombard's career here supposedly begins in 1930, ignoring her Fox, Sennett and Pathe work.) It's listed in good condition; find out more or purchase it at http://www.ebay.com/itm/Carole-Lombard-clipping-original-magazine-photo-1pg-8x10-R6441-/381308292157?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item58c7becc3d.

Next up...

...a clipping that discusses Carole's recuperation from that fateful automobile accident, one that more or less gets the story right (though I'm not certain when this came out). Want it, or are curious? Then visit http://www.ebay.com/itm/Carole-Lombard-clipping-original-magazine-photo-1pg-8x10-R6442-/381308292746?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item58c7bece8a.

Our third Carole clipping...

...this is from 1935, and its concern is that following her success in "Twentieth Century," Lombard might find herself typecast as a Lily Garland type. That certainly wasn't the case with "Rumba" (though it wasn't much of a movie, either), but that fall's "Hands Across the Table" proved she had a flair for comedy without having to resort to Lily-ish temperament. It can be yours by going to http://www.ebay.com/itm/Carole-Lombard-clipping-original-magazine-photo-1pg-8x10-R6444-/400944960061?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item5d5a2e923d.

Finally, we have...

...this from a fashion spread in Photoplay (the January 1940 issue, IIRC). Interested? Then check out http://www.ebay.com/itm/Carole-Lombard-clipping-original-magazine-photo-1pg-8x10-R6443/400944959796?_trksid=p2045573.c100033.m2042&_trkparms=aid%3D111001%26algo%3DREC.SEED%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D29979%26meid%3Dfa7e211a6c694a83aa80c3ac8a2be059%26pid%3D100033%26rk%3D4%26rkt%3D4%26sd%3D400944960061.

Carole's back in black for our latest Lombard LiveJournal header -- it's Paramount p1202-676.
