The Paramount stills, part 2

Slightly more than a month ago, we ran some of Carole Lombard's earliest promotional stills she made during her seven-year tenure at Paramount (http://community.livejournal.com/carole_and_co/58854.html). Well, here's the next part of the series, as the look of subject P-1202 (the prefix the studio used for Lombard photos) evolves.

Let's begin with P1202-218, 219 and 247:



Next, P1202-260, 263 and 265:



Finally, P1202-268, 276 and 279, when Lombard appears to be trying to adapt the Dietrich style (depending upon her mood at the time, Marlene might have used an early-thirties equivalent of "rip off"):



Some more Paramount pics in a few weeks.
