Much 'Todo' about Carole in Mexico

Carole Lombard visited Mexico more than a few times, especially for racing and gaming action at the Agua Caliente resort. I have no idea how fluent she was in Spanish -- though Los Angeles even then had a significant Mexican population -- but I'm guessing she at least was passable in the language.

Fan magazines such as Cine-Mundial made her a regular cover subject as far back as September 1929, and general mags did so as well, such as Todo (Spanish for "all" or "everything"). Take the Feb. 25, 1936 issue. Carole's on the cover...

...in a pin-up...

...and in a long story:

This issue, which has plenty of other features, is up for auction at eBay. Bidding begins at $12.99, and the auction ends at 12:03 p.m. (Eastern) Saturday. There are holes on the border, as the issue had been in a binder, but it's said to be in great condition otherwise.
