As we’ve previously seen, Carole Lombard was a popular magazine cover subject not only in North America, but in Europe, too. As proof, here she is gracing a 1938 issue of the Czechoslovakian publication Kinorevue, a magazine that continued into at least 1939 despite Germany’s annexation of the country, as this cover of Carole and James Stewart is indicative:

The ’38 magazine is being auctioned at eBay; it measures 10.5″ x 7.5″ and has 20 pages, and according to the seller is in very good condition. The minimum bid is $9.99, and bidding is set to close at 6:39 p.m. (Eastern) Wednesday. Interested, or merely want to Czech it out (sorry, couldn’t resist)? Go to

That same seller has two more Lombard mags available, both from Belgium earlier that decade and sold as a combo.

This is A to Z, from Nov. 13, 1932. It was followed several months later by…

...Ons Volk, from Feb. 19, 1933.

Each magazine is 32 pages long (A to Z measures 12″ x 9″, Ons Volk 11.5″ x 8.5″), and each has some light ageing but are in good condition. The magazine duo has an opening bid of $5.99, and its bidding will expire two minutes before Kinorevue. Place your bid or find out more by visiting

And finally, a reminder to those of you in the Los Angeles area:

The Loretta Young Centennial Birthday Tribute (belated though it may be) is set for tonight at the Alex Theatre in Glendale. The life and achievements of this Hollywood legend will be saluted through memorabilia, film clips and more, and it promises to be plenty of fun. And for those of you who do go, thank Linda Lewis (Loretta’s daughter-in-law) for making this possible.
