Alexa here from Pop Elegantiarum again. So yesterday was Carole Lombard's birthday. I usually mark the occasion by quoting my favorite lines from My Man Godfrey at every opportunity. ("Life is but an empty bubble.") Today I thought I'd share this old magazine of mine, which purports to tell Carole's life story. It doesn't really; it's mostly worth it for its sumptuous cover image of the goddess. I also love the back cover, an oddly patriotic image of Carole appearing to trod upon her hubby Clark Gable. For those of you unfamiliar with her fabulousness, do yourself a favor and add My Man Godfrey, Mr. & Mrs. Smith (not the one with Brangelina!), or To Be or Not to Be to your queue directly. You'll thank me later.
