Claudette Colbert: The 1930s

A large part of my collection of memorabilia is devoted to original lobby cards for films starring the stage and screen actress Claudette Colbert (1903-1996). The objects from my collection are displayed here in the order in which the films they promote or to which they relate were originally released.

The items, which I personally digitised (scanned or photographed), may be of a slightly later date, but all are of the period and none are latter-day reproductions. The display will be updated as my collection grows and as my time permits.
