Lombard, Transylvania style



What, you're thinking? Did Carole Lombard secretly make another horror film along the lines of 1933's "Supernatural" (shown above)?

Nope. While this entry has a connection to Transylvania, it's the real-life, modern-day section of Romania...sorry, no vampires or other monsters. And it's about some vintage British Lombard postcards available from a Transylvania eBay seller.

Take this one, for instance (both the front and back)...



..or this one:



Each are regulation postcard size with signatures printed onto the card. The top sells for $25, the bottom for $12, though you can make an offer on either.

Two other postcards team Carole with co-stars and are in artist-rendered color. First, Lombard and George Raft at Paramount...




...then, Carole with Cary Grant at RKO:




Each are $16 or make a best offer.

Find a link to all four items at https://www.ebay.com/sch/m.html?_odkw=&_ssn=lynxstamps&hash=item2a9da06151%3Ag%3ARyIAAOSwvktaaXmq&item=183033160017&_osacat=0&_from=R40&_trksid=p2046732.m570.l1313.TR12.TRC2.A0.H0.Xcarole+lombard.TRS0&_nkw=carole+lombard&_sacat=0.

Oh, and getting back to "Supernatural": While Lombard despised the assignment, where she portrayed a wealthy woman possessed by the spirit of a murderess, the fun-loving part of her couldn't resist using that unconventional makeup to "scare" some pals:



Finally, some personal news that's anything but scary: This week, my comedy screenplay "Stand Tall!" is an official selection of the LA Live Film Fest. As part of it, my promotional one-sheet received the festival's seal of approval, and another version created with additional info on the script. Here's what each of them looks like:




The festival takes place Nov. 10 at the Regal Cinemas LA Live 14, near the Grammy Museum.
