Striking it beautifully

A few weeks ago, we ran a photo of Carole Lombard at a bowling alley (http://community.livejournal.com/carole_and_co/101480.html). Well, here's another one, presumably taken at the same session -- only this one shows Carole actually bowling (nice form, too!):

Incidentally, it's listed as P1202-1249 in the Paramount files.

As with the last Lombard bowling picture, its source is the huge memorabilia collection of a New Jersey man named Joseph Saveriana -- and several other publicity stills of her are now also being auctioned at eBay.

Here's one of her sitting serenely cross-legged, wearing a robe...and from the look on her face, she may know something you don't. (One thing I don't know is the P1202 number here; it's impossible to make out against the very light background. Anyone here who has the picture, please inform us.)

Here's one of Carole peering seductively over the side of a chair -- and from the very visible number, we can tell this is one of her later stills at Paramount, P1202-1617:

You can see, and bid on these pictures through Wednesday night U.S. time. Opening bids for all three are $9.99, a reasonable starting price for these relatively rare stills.
