We open the second stage of our series of relatively rare Carole Lombard Paramount portraits now up for sale with this demure pic from late 1933 or early '34, p1202-631. This and all of the following are 8" x 10" reprints, but struck from the original negatives. If you're interested in this one, check out

Next in line is p1202-633, where Carole appears genuinely delighted to be clad in this dark gown:

Finally, a Lombard pic we don't have complete information for; its first two p1202 digits are "65," but we don't have the third (and it isn't p1202-65, which is from several years earlier and has a completely different appearance).

We also know the three digits aren't 655, 656 or 658 -- although p1202-654, taken by Otto Dyar, shows Carole in a similar setting:

Curious about the "mystery pic," so curious that you'd like to possess it. Then make your way to

The Mythical Monkey strikes again with some 1920s swashbuckling action, as Douglas Fairbanks becomes his era's Indiana Jones in "Raiders Of The Lost Ark," this version set during the World War (during the silent era, of course, only one such war had existed) and directed by Raoul Walsh. Can Indy get to the sacred treasure before the Kaiser's henchmen find it and use its mystic powers to conquer the world?
