A 'Godfrey' gown, described

A photograph of a gown Carole Lombard wore in "My Man Godfrey" now is up for auction at eBay. No, not the iconic gown seen above, but this one...

...not quite as famous, but certainly attractive. Even better, it's described on the back:

Gives you an idea of what this would look like in color. The pic is from Universal, so it explains why designer Travis Banton (a Paramount employee) wasn't named.

It's a glossy single-weight original, another from the George Smoots collection. And it's said to be in excellent condition. Bidding begins at $39.99, with the auction closing at 10:08 p.m. (Eastern) next Sunday.
