The lady gives thanks

Carole Lombard knew that while she had worked hard to achieve her high status in Hollywood, she also was extremely fortunate. So for the December 1939 issue of Movie Mirror, Carole -- preparing for her first holiday season as Clark Gable's wife -- said as such to her fans in a special Thanksgiving message.

The magazine ran it both in her handwriting...

...and in print:

What else is inside? Of course, there's a table of contents, facing an ad for William Powell' "comeback" film, "Another Thin Man" with Myrna Loy...

...an ad and photo on facing pages for Claudette Colbert and Henry Fonda in John Ford's Technicolor "Drums Along the Mohawk"...

...and two stories on Barbara Stanwyck, one an "as told to" by Stany herself:

Not a bad little package as that glorious cinematic year 1939 was nearing its climax.
