Lombard, with some pad-ding   Leave a comment

Current mood: amusedamused

In July 1938, Carole Lombard spent a week doing office work, specifically handling publicity for Selznick International Pictures (http://carole-and-co.livejournal.com/450645.html). But one doubts she used this while taking notes or messages:

It’s a notepad with Lombard’s picture on it, but for one thing, she probably would have deemed it too tacky. For another, it denotes her as with “Paramount,” and that wouldn’t have ingrained her with David O. Selznick, would it? (Particularly while she still harbored ambitions, albeit remote, of landing that coveted Scarlett O’Hara role in “Gone With The Wind.”)

But this 8″ x 10″ notepad -- unused -- can be yours. (The seller says there’s soiling on the bottom quarter of the pad, though I doubt anyone who obtains this at least 75-year-old artifact will actually use it for taking notes.) Bids begin at $6.99, with bids closing at 10:05 a.m. (Eastern) Thursday.
