carole lombard true confession danish novel program 00b

Carole Lombard film memorabilia, that is.

Above is the cover of a movie novel program of “True Confession,” which we learn was issued in May 1938:

carole lombard true confession danish novel program 01a

I know next to nothing about the Danish language, but I can tell you that according to the seller, this measures 5 1/2″ x 8″, roughly the size of a herald that U.S. theaters would have issued at the time. But this is far more thorough; it runs some 42 pages, including the front and back covers, and apparently is sort of a novelization of the movie, including photos such as this:

The seller describes it as “really rare and collectible,” and I definitely concur. Bidding on this item opens at $45, and the auction is set to close at 10:18 p.m. (Eastern) next Friday. It looks like the type of collectible that transcends language, and if you’re interested, go to http://www.ebay.com/itm/TRUE-CONFESSION-CAROLE-LOMBARD-FRED-MACMURRAY-DANISH-MOVIE-NOVEL-PROGRAM-/161333946217?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item259040a769.

The same seller has a similar item from Carole’s first film of 1939, “Made For Each Other”:

This is more of a straight program than a novelization, as it runs for only 12 pages and measures 5″ x 7″ (with a pair of punchholes; someone evidently stored it in a notebook). The minimum bid here is $30, and it closes 14 minutes later than its counterpart.
