A stunning portrait of Carole Lombard graces the cover of the 1938 summer edition of Screen Album, which as the name implies was not so much a fan magazine as a pictorial, as its table of contents make evident:

Published by Dell, Screen Album was issued once every few months, with a page dedicated to each star that was featured (note that Lombard’s page was facing Clark Gable’s, just as did William Powell’s and Myrna Loy’s pages). There were a few two-page spreads inside with some editorial copy as well, such as this “They Dance For You” spotlighting Fred Astaire, Ginger Rogers, Eleanor Powell and George Murphy:

On the back cover was this sultry ad for Savage lipstick, available in tangerine, flame, natural, blush and jungle:
