She'll bowl you over

On two different occasions this year, we've shown you stills of Carole Lombard participating in bowling (http://community.livejournal.com/carole_and_co/101480.html, http://community.livejournal.com/carole_and_co/113916.html). Well, here's one more from that session -- and at this angle, you're the kingpin, and Carole's ready to knock you down.



(We assume, for the photographer's sake, that she didn't actually let go of the ball!)

The close-up of her is worth checking out:



The source for this picture is the same as the last two -- the estate of New Jersey resident Joseph Saveriana. He collected a huge number of publicity stills of Lombard and other stars, and a few more in addition to this are being auctioned at eBay.

Here's one of Carole, with some fancy millinery, looking elegant:



This portrait's along the same lines, although the hat is considerably different:



Finally, a more casual Carole with a come-hither glance:



As is usual with the vendor of these items, bids begin at $9.99 (as of this writing, the last two stills already have one bid). Bidding will last through just past 8:45 p.m. (Eastern) next Wednesday.
