Like that portrait of Carole Lombard? It's from William E. Thomas during her Pathe days in 1929, and it's one of the items being auctioned tomorrow through the site Profiles in History and its Hollywood Auction 56 (https://www.profilesinhistory.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/07/HA56L1.pdf). It's an 11" x 14" double-weight, gelatin silver print in fine condition.

Getting back to Profiles in History, it will have an auction of Lucille Ball memorabilia on Tuesday. Yes, there will be plenty of items from "I Love Lucy" and her television days (and no, there are no photos of Lucy with Lombard), but these are my favorites from collection -- the documents that started it all for her, back in 1933. That July, Samuel Goldwyn sent Ball a message to head to Hollywood...
...and in August, a modification of her contract loaning her out to Darryl F. Zanuck's Twentieth Century Pictures (two years before its merger with Fox):
