Carole Lombard gave her best wishes to British film fans in the Sept. 9, 1933 issue of Picturegoer, a leading UK movie magazine. Okay, so it got part of her story wrong — Lombard was not a lifelong resident of Hollywood — but with a photo like that, so what?

Gracing the cover, long before Tim Burton was even born, was Carole’s Paramount stablemate, Sylvia Sidney:

Lombard would appear on the magazine’s cover on May 18, 1935 (and it looks as if Picturegoer reused her signature!):

On the inside were fetching photos of Claudette Colbert…

…Alice Faye in “George White’s 1935 Scandals”…

…and Marlene Dietrich, as part of a gossip column:

Both of these magazines can be yours through eBay. The 1933 magazine is generally in very good condition despite some minor markings. The minimum bid is $8.99, and bidding ends at 8:58 p.m. (Eastern) Tuesday. You can bid, or find out more, by visiting

The 1935 Picturegoer is complete, and also in very good condition. One bid has been made as of this writing, for $9.99, with bids closing at 6:03 p.m. (Eastern) Monday. Interested? Then go to
