Three more pics...oops, make that four

In yesterday's entry about some new Carole Lombard images, I announced, "We’ll run three of them today and save the other three for tomorrow." Well, that isn't going to happen...because we have four more photos for you to enjoy (and bid on, if you so desire).

The first one is above; it's said to be a George Hurrell photo, but it looks very much like one of the images of Carole used in the 1933 Paramount potboiler "White Woman." It's an 8" x 10" in near mint condition, including a sealed plastic sleeve. Bids open at $35 and last through 12:19 p.m. (Eastern) Saturday. If interested, go to http://www.ebay.com/itm/CAROLE-LOMBARD-PHOTO-BY-GEORGE-HURRELL/281099455567?_trksid=p2045573.m2042&_trkparms=aid%3D111000%26algo%3DREC.CURRENT%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D27%26meid%3D7289571440613454005%26pid%3D100033%26prg%3D1011%26rk%3D4%26sd%3D370805292435%26.

Next, to April 18, 1936, and one of the first public photos of Lombard with Clark Gable:

From Hearst's International News Service, this is described as "rare," probably the reason bids on this start at $100; bids close at 12:46 p.m. Saturday, and you can get more information at http://www.ebay.com/itm/ORIGINAL-1936-PHOTO-OF-CAROLE-LOMBARD-AND-CLARK-GABLE-AT-MIDGET-AUTO-RACES/281099475477?_trksid=p2045573.m2042&_trkparms=aid%3D111000%26algo%3DREC.CURRENT%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D27%26meid%3D7289914780800156376%26pid%3D100033%26prg%3D1011%26rk%3D4%26sd%3D281099455567%26.

Finally, not one, but two images of Lombard with James Stewart in promotional art for "Made For Each Other." They teamed up for several portraits for the film, but I've never seen either of these:

Each of these have opening bids of $7.99, which may mean they aren't originals, but I can't say one way or the other. Bidding closes at 1:37 and 1:38 p.m. (Eastern) Thursday. Curious? Then go to http://www.ebay.com/itm/James-Stewart-Carole-Lombard-Publicity-Photo-2/370805291697?_trksid=p2045573.m2042&_trkparms=aid%3D111000%26algo%3DREC.CURRENT%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D27%26meid%3D7290090823319860672%26pid%3D100033%26prg%3D1011%26rk%3D2%26sd%3D370805292435%26 for the picture on top and http://www.ebay.com/itm/James-Stewart-Carole-Lombard-Publicity-Photo-3/370805292435?_trksid=p2045573.m2042&_trkparms=aid%3D111000%26algo%3DREC.CURRENT%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D27%26meid%3D7290123000277428714%26pid%3D100033%26prg%3D1011%26rk%3D2%26sd%3D370805291697%26 for the one on the bottom.

We'll have even more Lombard images tomorrow...but this time, I'm not going to give you a specific number as to how many.
