Focus on a haughty, lovely Lombard

What's Carole Lombard doing with WIlliam Powell and Gloria Swanson? Since we have the back of this photo, we can find out:

Lombard, ex-husband Powell, Swanson and her husband Michael Farmer were at the opera on Oct. 15, 1933 -- two months after Bill and Carole divorced. Wonder if the ex-Mrs. Powell carried this with her that night?

This is Paramount p1202-214, from the previous summer. A slightly larger version:

There's a good chance those binoculars were merely a prop for Carole to wear in her current film, Sinners In The Sun":

It would explain why Lombard appears unusually haughty. Then again, perhaps her character is trying to fit into "high society."

This is an 8" x 10" glossy single-weight, in fine condition with general storage and handling wear. As of this writing, four bids have been made, the highest at $20.50. The auction is slated to close at 10:06 p.m. (Eastern) Oct. 29.
