Back from the ranch

Two years before marrying Clark Gable and buying an Encino home and ranch, Carole Lombard had a ranch of her own elsewhere in the San Fernando Valley. However, her recent rustic ways aren't on display in this publicity still, Paramount p1202-1481:

This photo shoot resulted in numerous released poses, but this is one I've never come across before.

On the back, a snipe reveals why Carole had been away from Paramount and its fabled Bronson Gate entrance, shown at a casting call for extras in 1930:

While the date at the top of the page reads "8/25/38," that almost certainly was typed in -- because the copy at the bottom (enlarged below) refers to an upcoming film of hers actually released the previous fall, "True Confession":

It's an original photo with a little bit of wear in one corner...and it goes for $500. (Can't afford it in one fell swoop? You can also pay $46 a month for 12 months.)
