An 'MGM slide,' but from a Paramount pic

This ad for Carole Lombard's "Safety In Numbers" ran in the St. Louis Post-Dispatch on June 13, 1930 (https://carole-and-co.livejournal.com/930067.html). We know it to be Lombard's initial film for Paramount, but not everyone does. This slide on eBay is proof:

It's listed as a slide for MGM studios, but doesn't cite the film's title. A bit of research would've shown it was for a Paramount picture...but we digress. The angle here is that a rare slide from Carole's first Paramount release is available. More pics of the slide:

The last of these is flipped.

Bidding on this slide begins at $5, with the auction closing soon -- 9:47 p.m. (Eastern) Wednesday. You can also buy it now for $50, not a wise option given the lack of activity.

If you collect glass slides promoting Lombard films (https://carole-and-co.livejournal.com/456455.html), this is a real rarity.

Bid, or learn more, by visiting https://www.ebay.com/itm/Carole-Lombard-slide-Mgm-Rare-Old/352944227565?_trkparms=aid%3D111001%26algo%3DREC.SEED%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D20160811114145%26meid%3De740313ee9d3408cb832cc75fad2891f%26pid%3D100667%26rk%3D1%26rkt%3D6%26mehot%3Dnone%26sd%3D352944227565%26itm%3D352944227565%26pmt%3D0%26noa%3D1%26pg%3D2334524&_trksid=p2334524.c100667.m2042.
