Opening of Pinocchio in 1940.... Clark Gable & Carol Lombard...



Item # 683287

February 02, 1940

NEW YORK POST, February 2, 1940

* Ad leading up to the premier of Pinocchio
* Clark Gable and wife Carole Lombard lost

Page 9 has an ad for Pinocchio a week before the premier. This was the 2nd feature length film by Walt Disney.  Additionally, the front page begins an article: "GABLE AND HIS WIFE BELIEVED SAFE", with subhead: "Friends Say They are Probably Marooned in Station Wagon", "the couple was feared to have been lost in the gale-swept country of rugged Lower California". There is an ad for "Gone with The Wind" on pg. 9 which was released 3 months earlier. 
Complete with 22 pages, some wear along the spine with small binding holes, small library stamp on the front page, generally nice.
