Current mood: hopefulhopeful

It’s early 1936, and if Paramount stablemates and good friends Carole Lombard and Gail Patrick are linked together by movie fans, it’s only for the latter’s supporting work in the former’s mediocre dance vehicle “Rumba” from the year before. They had not yet been publicly cast as sisters in the eventual screwball classic “My Man Godfrey,” which would be filmed at Universal that spring and summer. So it’s no wonder that when the Feb. 16 issue of Hearst’s Baltimore American put them on its Hollywood rotogravure page, they occupied opposite ends:

In fact, at that point, Carole’s upcoming picture was known as “Concertina,” not its eventual title “The Princess Comes Across.” In the upper right-hand corner, waving in an artist-rendered red, is Rochelle Hudson, now with Twentieth Century-Fox. The lower left-hand corner is occupied by Warners starlet Paula Stone.

“The Camera Catches The Personalities Of Hollywood’s Movie Stars,” according to the newspaper…and then the art department adds color to these black-and-white pics.

This 16″ x 20″ page is in fair condition; you can buy it straight up for $19.50 or make an offer.
