Carole and Coop, "Now And Forever," plus Carla's book on TCM

There are many photos from Carole Lombard's 1934 drama "Now And Forever" with Gary Cooper, but the above pic is new to me. It's vintage, as information on the rear makes evident:

While neither Shirley Temple nor Sir Guy Standing are in the photo, both are listed.

This 8" x 10" sells for $249.99, though you can make an offer. Get additional information by visiting https://www.ebay.com/itm/Gary-Cooper-CAROLE-LOMBARD-LOVELY-PORTRAIT-NOW-AND-FOREVER-1934-ORIG-PHOTO-401/324379052983?hash=item4b867f8bb7:g:sYsAAOSw2gBftSZb.

Not long ago, I noted my Facebook friend Carla Valderrama had written a book about little-known stories of the Golden Age of movies titled "This Was Hollywood" (https://carole-and-co.livejournal.com/1134461.html). Yesterday, the book -- issued under TCM auspices -- was officially released, and tonight Valderrama appears on TCM to discuss the book and four films associated with its topics.

At 8 p.m. (Eastern), there's "Body And Soul" (1947) with blacklisted and short-lived John Garfield; at 10, "The Sign Of The Ram" (1948) with Susan Peters, two years after a hunting accident left her wheelchair-bound and doomed a promising career; at 11:45, the all-black musical "Stormy Weather" (1943), featuring fantastic dancing from the Nicholas Brothers; and at 1:15 a.m., choreography of a different kind, as tap-dancer extraordinaire Eleanor Powell partners with Fred Astaire in "Broadway Melody Of 1940."
