It's really her, all right

Not all classic Hollywood actresses look alike, of course. But Carole Lombard and her contemporaries often had similarities of appearance that could confuse those who didn't know any better.

The photo above, for instance, exudes a bit of a contemplative Marilyn Monroe '50s vibe. And these pics of Joan Crawford and then Ann Sothern have often been erroneously identified as Lombard.

A pic of Carole now on eBay might lead one to believe it isn't her, as its facial imagery just doesn't quite jibe with a typical Lombard look:

But it's from 1932, when Lombard was at her blondest. Then examine the scar on her left cheek, the huge sapphire ring (from then-husband William Powell) that she's wearing. It is definitely Carole, as this close-up proves:

A collector labeled it Lombard on the back:

So it's unquestionably her.

As for the actual picture, it's an 8 1/8" x 10" original in fine/very fine condition. The seller writes it's "flat, bright, clean and glossy," with "just the slightest surface wear."

You can buy it now for $149.95 or make an offer.
