1 Amants (Sweethearts) Jeanette MacDonald et Nelson Eddy Collection Romancines (Circa 1938)

This French language booklet was published in Paris to tell the story of the 1938 Metro Goldwyn Mayer movie "Sweethearts" starring Jeanette MacDonald and Nelson Eddy. Booklet is illustrated with black and white photos from the movie and measures 6" x 9" with 15 pages of text. It appears to be part of a collection of booklets telling the stories of romantic films. I have never see any of them, so this was an interesting find. The booklet is clean and tightly bound, bunddoes show some toning to the margins of the front cover.

Coast to Coast Fashion Awards By the E.F. MacDonald Company
2 Coast to Coast Fashion Awards By the E.F. MacDonald Company
Dayton, Ohio E.F. MacDonald Company 1962 soft cover Very Good 
This oversized catalogue is a monument to 60's clothing for men, women and children. It's clean as a whistle inside and out and measures 12" square. The photography is much more interesting than usual, as in addition to the regular shots of models, there are many large full color plates of vignettes where people are modeling the clothes against colorful backgrounds. Initially I thought this was a retail outlet, but it is not. E.F. MacDonald was an incentive company associated most commonly with Plaid Stamps. This catalog, however, makes no reference to stamps. Each item bears a number, but there are no prices and no stamp requirements stated. It seems likely that there must have been a correlating sheet laid-in with info telling how many books of stamps were needed. Unpaginated, but I counted 31.

Rialto Theatre Program for the Week of November 8, 1926, Bebe Daniels, Gloria Swanson, Clara Bow, Eddie Cantor
6 Bebe Daniels, Gloria Swanson, Clara Bow, Eddie Cantor Rialto Theatre Program for the Week of November 8, 1926
New York Star Program Co. 1926 Leaflet Very good condition 
This is ephemera at its most ephemeral. It's a small (4-1/2" x 6") leaflet folded in half -- the odds were not great for its longevity and yet here it is. The previous owner had it in a rigid plastic sleeve and I have left it there and will send it as is. The cover picture is of Bebe Daniels, a big deal in her day. She was starring in "The Campus Flirt." What's astounding is how many shows there were in any given week. Others include "Fine Manners" with Gloria Swanson, "The Beautiful Cheat" with Laura La Plante; "Fighting with Buffalo Bill" with Wallace MacDonald; and "The Blue Streak" with Richard Talmadge. Four more are listed at back as coming attractions, the best of which was "Kid Boots" with Eddie Cantor, Clara Bow and Billie Dove.

Radio Stars Magazine December 1937 (Jeanette MacDonald, Kitty Carlisle), Grady,Lester (editor)
7 Grady,Lester (editor) Radio Stars Magazine December 1937 (Jeanette MacDonald, Kitty Carlisle)
Dunellen, New Jersey Dell Publishing 1937 soft cover Very Good 
In the heyday of radio Radio Stars Magazine was the biggest publication of its kind. So many of the movie stars got their break on radio before they hit the big screen. The cover of this issue features Jeanette McDonald fresh off her honeymoon, plus a story about the then very young Kitty Carlisle. Some of the names have faded, but it's interesting to get a bird's eye view of the radio stars when radio was a Big Thing. There's also gossip and a complete coast to coast radio guide. magazine measures 8-1/2" x 11-1/2" and has 92 pages. Magazine is clean and tightly bound with just a 3" area of staining to spine and a few small spots of wear to top front edge. Overall nice.

Very crisp, clean magazine with no defects of note. This issue offers six short stories and nine articles.

The was of course was over, but a major story focused on the housing problem. So many servicemen returned to the U.S. it was a competition to snag what houses were available, either for rent or to buy. Another piece is more upbeat following years of anguish.
