Current mood: confused
I pulled this pic of Carole Lombard and Ricardo Cortez from the May 1933 issue of Movie Classic at the Media History Digital Library two Augusts ago, but I’m not sure if I ever did anything with it. I wrote an entry about items in that issue (http://carole-and-co.livejournal.com/624350.html), and yet for some reason this didn’t make the cut. It’s from Paramount’s Irving Lippman, and it raises some questions.
Lombard and Cortez (real name Jacob Krantz, as we noted back in 2008 at http://carole-and-co.livejournal.com/162206.html) made but one film together, “No One Man,” which was released early in 1932. However, this is said to be from more than a year later, and apparently is not a production still.
The caption features references to Lombard’s upcoming “Supernatural” as well as to a Cortez release, “Dead on Arrival.” (IMDb lists no film from the ’30s by that name.) Anyway, the photo is charming, and certainly explains why Cortez was among the more appealing actors of his time — even if the characters he portrayed didn’t always possess similar qualities.
This 8″ x 10″ original vintage pic now is available, albeit not in sepia:
