'Breakfast,' en francais

French film audiences adored Carole Lombard as much as their counterparts elsewhere, so much so that an early-sixties revival of "To Be Or Not To Be" ran in Paris for more than a year.

But a quarter-century earlier, "Love Before Breakfast" (titled "Ce Que Femme Veut" in France) was popular there -- so much so that it led to this item:

It's a 90-page novelization of the film, including 16 pages of photo stills.

Measuring 9" x 6", it's now available at eBay for $24 -- a fine holiday gift for the Francophile Lombard fan. To purchase it, go to https://www.ebay.com/itm/LOVE-BEFORE-BREAKFAST-CAROLE-LOMBARD-1937-FRENCH-PHOTOPLAY/352533460181?hash=item5214a1b4d5:g:WJMAAOSwFURcBAj~:rk:4:pf:0.

Au revoir, mes amis.
