Carole Lombard and Fredric March certainly made a fine romantic team in the 1937 screwball gem “Nothing Sacred.” But were future generations see the following sign, they might just misconstrue what kind of romance their characters had:

“A gay new love team”? Just how would Lombard and March achieve that? Well, Fredric won an Oscar for “Dr. Jekyll And Mr. Hyde”; perhaps some other concoction might change him in a different way (think the ’90s sci-fi comedy “Dr. Jekyll And Ms. Hyde,” where Tim Daly — playing a descendant of the famed doctor — ingests a formula that mutates him into Sean Young). Or perhaps Carole could dig out that erotic item she used to ward off March’s off-screen wayward hands (http://carole-and-co.livejournal.com/30900.html).

Actually, the poster above is from Australia, one of three vintage daybills being auctioned as a group. The other two are from Anthony Quinn’s “A High Wind In Jamaica” (1965)…

…and Joanne Woodward’s “A Big Hand For The Little Lady” (1966):

They are being sold as a three-pack with the minimum bid at $13.70 US. Bidding ends at 2:32 a.m. (Eastern) Dec. 8. If you’re curious about these items or wish to bid, go to http://www.ebay.com/itm/3-x-VINTAGE-OZ-DAYBILL-MOVIE-POSTERS-STONE-LITHO-CAROLE-LOMBARD-1930s/281218372947?_trksid=p2045573.m2042&_trkparms=aid%3D111000%26algo%3DREC.CURRENT%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D18475%26meid%3D3103097480833048666%26pid%3D100033%26prg%3D8385%26rk%3D4%26rkt%3D4%26sd%3D321262339518%26.

Today marks Woody Allen’s 78th birthday, and to celebrate, here’s one of his comic monologues from the mid-1960s, one of the funniest routines of that era, right up there with Bob Newhart’s “button-down mind” bits or Bill Cosby’s “Noah.” It’s called “The Moose,” and it’s splendidly constructed, building one situation atop another until its classic climax. If you’ve never heard it before, you’re in for a treat; if you have, you’ll love hearing it again.
