Carole Lombard, RKO (plenty of) style

Carole Lombard's arrival at RKO in the spring of 1939, for the likes of "In Name Only" (a publicity still for which is shown above), coincided with her long-sought marriage to Clark Gable. That accomplishment infused Carole with confidence, and it showed in her fashion photographs.

Yet another photo from the noted George Smoots collection, this 8" x 10" is on glossy single-weight paper. It's said to be in excellent condition.

Bids on this item begin at $39.99, with the auction slated to end at 10:24 p.m. (Eastern) Sunday. To bid or learn more, visit https://www.ebay.com/itm/CAROLE-LOMBARD-in-STYLISH-PORTRAIT-Original-Vintage-1939-KAHLE-Stamp-RKO-Photo/143365866054?hash=item2161458246:g:7D8AAOSwBCNdZF96.
