If you could whisk yourself back in time some 74 years (or, since it’s Halloween, enlist the services of a friendly witch to make it happen), you’d find the above magazine cover on newsstands on Oct. 31, 1939. It’s Screen Book, showing Carole Lombard in her new “farm girl” domestic persona, complete with goat.

That motif was continued inside, alongside farmer husband Clark Gable:

Also in the magazine were photo features on the magical “Eternally Yours,” with Loretta Young and David Niven…

…and a two-page spread on the latest Mickey Rooney-Judy Garland vehicle, “Babes In Arms”:

The back cover has an ad for Lucky Strike…

…ironic, since this magazine apparently comes from “a smoke-free home.” At least that’s what the seller says, listing the issue in very good condition.

If you’d like to add it to your collection, note that as of this writing, one bid (for $13.99) already has been made; bidding is slated to end at 8:01 p.m. (Eastern) on Wednesday (after most of the U.S. reverts to Standard time).
