As early as her Pathe days, Carole Lombard made her love for animals evident, through the likes of this 1929 pose with an Alaskan Malamute. Another portrait of Carole and canine was used on the cover of a 1930 European movie magazine:

The magazine, called Het Weekblad, was sold in Belgium and the Netherlands, covering cinema and theater. It measured 9″ x 11.75″, and this particular issue ran 32 pages and also featured photos of Greta Garbo, Norma Shearer, John Gilbert and several European stars. The back cover featured Lilian Harvey and her…

…donkey.

The seller, from Rotterdam in the Netherlands, notes this was once part of a bound volume, which explains some of the loose pages. Nevertheless, it’s in good condition, and the front and back covers are suitable for framing.

One bid has already been made for this, at $6.95; bids close at 6:11 p.m. (Eastern) on Thursday. If this is something you’d like to add to your collection, go to http://www.ebay.com/itm/1930-Art-Deco-Silent-Film-Theatre-magazine-Carol-Lombard-/230879958332?pt=Magazines&hash=item35c184953c.

We’ll leave you with this tribute to the comedic genius of Jonathan Winters, whose birthday is today. Just about every upstate New Yorker of a certain age (myself included) fondly remembers the long-running series of commercials for Utica Club beer, featuring the adventures of beloved talking beer mugs Schultz (who looked Germanic) and Dooley (the Irish one). What many don’t know is that most of the voices in those spots were supplied by Winters. Here’s a sample commercial from the campaign, with Winters doing impressions of Humphrey Bogart, Bela Lugosi…and Carole’s second husband. Enjoy. (There are many more Schultz and Dooley ads available via the Internet.)
