So what's this about a 'new divorce'?

Carole Lombard and William Powell's divorce was approved in Nevada on Aug. 18, 1933, so it hardly was "new" when this publicity photo, Paramount p1202-1135, was issued in early 1936:

But the marking on the back refers to something listed as "New Divorce, The." Huh?

Nothing in Carole & Co. files refers to any project by that name. At least we do learn this is a Eugene Robert Richee work...and as usual for his creations, it's pretty darn stunning.

This is an 8" x 10" glossy single-weight from the George Smoots Collection, said to be in excellent condition. (There's a small faint dimple at top center and a faint vertical line at right.)

Bidding opens at $39.99, with the auction closing at 10:39 p.m. (Eastern) Tuesday.
