A goddess in gray chiffon

We've previously run this Carole Lombard Paramount still, p1202-1272, but knew little about it -- until this version appeared, with a snipe on the rear:

The wording in close-up:

Gray chiffon, plenty of beautiful bare back, a brooch in star sapphire -- it's by all means "ethereal." The photo was issued in 1935, but this copy didn't arrive at its media outlet until February of '36.

This 8" x 10" single-weight from the George Smoots collection is in excellent condition, and is up for auction. Bidding begins at $39.99 and closes at 11:04 p.m. (Eastern) Sunday.
