Ole...it's Carole, the senorita

Was Carole Lombard cognizant of how popular she was in Latin America? As early as the late 1920s, Carole graced covers of Spanish-language magazines, and seemingly got more attention from them than from their English-language counterparts.

With Lombard's uncanny sense of public relations, I'd say the answer was yes. It wouldn't surprise me if she collected publications where she appeared in some way, or had someone do it for her.

So we shouldn't be surprised to see her above, looking very much like a lady south of the border. Carole regularly visited casinos and racetracks in Mexico while married to William Powell.

The pic is Paramount p1202-942, from 1934, and you can get this 8" x 10" glossy for $3.99 (it's presumably not an original) by visiting http://www.ebay.com/itm/Carole-Lombard-8x10-glossy-Photo-E4684-/381500692496?hash=item58d3369810:g:UZUAAOSwzOxUXXgs.

The seller has two other Lombard pics for the same price. Here's p1202-937, which can be found at http://www.ebay.com/itm/Carole-Lombard-8x10-glossy-photo-F2450-/381500692480?hash=item58d3369800:m:mxMcFzqHXjN5a0gnFS-WdNQ:

Finally, this pic of her in fur is at http://www.ebay.com/itm/Carole-Lombard-in-fur-8x10-glossy-photo-F132-/381500686008?hash=item58d3367eb8:m:mppGfgM1k46BfCb2wfbiu8A:

I want to wish everyone here a great holiday season, and here's the greeting from my alma mater's athletic department (the University of Maryland). In this charming video, Testudo the terrapin mascot is accidentally left "home alone" at xfinity Center (home to the Terps' two Top 5 basketball teams, wrestling and volleyball). So there's some fun until the bus returns to rescue him. Enjoy.
