Credit appreciated, credit (Richee) given

Carole Lombard made a magnificent portrait subject for numerous photographers during the Golden Age, and Eugene Robert Richee was no exception. However, he had an advantage over most of his rivals -- he worked at Paramount, Carole's studio home from 1930 to 1937. Richee thus trained his lens on Lombard countless times, such as in that sultry shot above.

Here's another from him, p1202-954:

The bare-shoulder look is exquisitely sensual; is she being aloof or enticing? That's for the viewer to decide.

While this pic has no snipe, it not only identifies Richee on the reverse, but tells what film this is promoting:

More about the photo -- it's 8" x 10", a single-weight in excellent condition. Like many of its cohorts on eBay, it's from the George Smoots collection. As of this writing, one bid has been made, for $39.99. The auction closes at 10:18 p.m. (Eastern) Sunday.

Can you beat that bid? If so, go to https://www.ebay.com/itm/CAROLE-LOMBARD-in-STUNNING-BARE-SHOULDER-PORTRAIT-Original-1935-Photo-by-RICHEE/143535649377?hash=item216b643261:g:swkAAOSwGF5eMwDN for this vintage beauty.
