Two visions of Carole from '34



A pair of Paramount portraits of Carole Lombard circa 1934, neither of which I've come across before, are now available via eBay.

Above is p1202-824, a stunning photo (just look at those penetrating eyes!). It's a re-strike, not an original, and will be available for bidding through 8:52 p.m. (Eastern) Saturday, Bids begin at #7.99; none have been made as of yet. To place a bid or learn more, visit http://www.ebay.com/itm/CAROLE-LOMBARD-8X11-Photo-B-W-Up-Close-Stunning-Portrait-1930s-/300619834579?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item45fe56a4d3. (And thanks to Tally Haugen for her work on that pic.)

Next up, the elegant p1202-908, from a bit later in the year:



This is a vintage 8" x 10", listed in excellent condition (according to the seller, its defects are minor -- slightly toned, several light creases and indentations, a 1/8" tear in the bottom border, tiny folds in 3 corners).

You can buy it straight up for $99.95 or make a bid (minimum $89.95); the sale is slated to end at 10:32 p.m. (Eastern) Sunday. You can purchase, bid or find out more at http://www.ebay.com/itm/BEAUTIFUL-SEXY-CAROLE-LOMBARD-EXC-COND-1934-PHOTO-PARAMOUNT-/170724652039?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item27bffb7407.

This week's header features Lombard and Monroe Owsley alongside the drunken form of Gene Raymond (playing the playboy husband of Carole's character) in a scene from the 1933 Columbia film "Brief Moment."
