Carole was quite popular with the men. I noticed she romanced some pretty big wigs.

I am trying to find out which issue of Collier`s magazine had an article about Carole Lombard`s death, and I think an interview/story about how Gable was dealing with it. A play I am directing mentions it, and uses a prop of that issue. Anyone know? I could find then the image online and print a dummy front/back cover.
