Carole Lombard’s character, film star Kay Winters, was said to have worn this outfit in Paris in the otherwise lackluster “Fools For Scandal,” but during the 33-plus years on earth, the real-life Lombard never visited a largely French-speaking area. She may have gone hunting with Clark Gable in western Canada, but she never came to largely Francophone Quebec.
However, that doesn’t mean the Quebecois didn’t care about Carole. Proof can be seen in the Sept. 10, 1936 issue of Le Courrier du Cinema...
…a portrait and the closing part of a piece on her new film “My Man Godfrey.”
Elsewhere in that issue was a cover with up-and-coming Warners actress Marie Wilson…
…an interview with Boris Karloff during a recent visit to Montreal, and photos of Olivia de Havilland and Errol Flynn.
The pages themselves are in fine shape, though there are no staples to hold them and other minor imperfections.
