Before 'Breakfast,' Universal had a 'Dinner'

Many fans know Carole Lombard made two films for Universal, both in 1936 -- "My Man Godfrey," of course, and her first, "Love Before Breakfast" (shown above, with Cesar Romero). But did you know "Breakfast" initially had a different title, one also food-related?

Here's proof:

This is from a 1936 advance advertising book from Universal where the studio admits the film had a "tentative title" of "Spinster Dinner" (the name of the Cosmopolitan story it was adapted from). It also called Carole the "fascinating exotic star of innumerable hits."

This is a big page, measuring 18 7/8" x 9 3/4". It's in great condition, too.

Want this rarity? It goes for $89.99 straight up, or you can make an order. To find out more, visit https://www.ebay.com/itm/1936-Carole-Lombard-Universal-Studio-Press-page-Love-Before-Breakfast-RARE/163428688262?hash=item260d1be186.
