A p1202 so leggy, yet so negative

Earlier in the 1920s, Carole Lombard's legs propelled her to victory in junior high and high school track events. By decade's end, those legs lifted her to cinematic triumphs in Mack Sennett comedies and in Pathe publicity stills such as this, where sex appeal was a selling point.

By the time she became a Paramount player in 1930, Lombard's legginess was still exploited, although used less often. It was the selling point of studio still p1202-243 in mid-1932:

I wish I could tell you more about it, but I've only seen it as a photographic negative, both here and in February 2018 from eMoviePoster.com:
