“They Knew What They Wanted” released in the fall of 1940, would be Carole Lombard’s last excursion into drama…but because of global conflict, much of the world not under Axis rule didn’t get a chance to see it right away. In Sweden, for example, it didn’t open until Jan. 19, 1942 — three days after Lombard’s death in a plane crash.

This 36-page magazine is in good condition. Bidding begins at $9.99, with the auction ending at 12:35 a.m. (Eastern) Sunday.
