'Orchids' to 'Nowhere'

carole lombard no more orchids 34a

Carole Lombard, as heiress Anne Holt, stands on a chair with cocktail in hand addressing the throng in a still from "No More Orchids" (1932), her second film for Columbia. It's an 8" x 10" original currently on sale at eBay for $23.95, or you can make an offer, in which case bidding will end at 3 a.m. (Eastern) Dec. 26. You can get more information by visiting http://www.ebay.com/itm/Carol-Lombard-original-00002A-/301027811979?pt=Art_Photo_Images&hash=item4616a7e28b.

The same seller has three vintage pics from the 1928 Mack Sennett comedy "The Girl From Nowhere," but Lombard is only visible in one (she's standing near a railing wearing a dark dress and light coat):

The same sale conditions apply for this item, although the deadline is seven minutes earlier than the one above. If this piques your curiosity, then go to http://www.ebay.com/itm/Girl-From-Nowhere-Carole-Lombard-Original-00009A-/301027809196?pt=Art_Photo_Images&hash=item4616a7d7ac.

The two non-Lombard pics from "Nowhere" can be viewed at http://www.ebay.com/sch/m.html?_odkw=&item=301027810335&pt=Art_Photo_Images&_osacat=0&hash=item4616a7dc1f&_ssn=movie_star_news&_trksid=p2046732.m570.l1313.TR8.TRC2.A0.Xcarole+lombard&_nkw=carole+lombard&_sacat=0&_from=R40.

Carole shot an arrow in the air, where it landed, we really don't care (although her later self would say that's no way to get yourself Thanksgiving dinner). What we do care about is that it's Paramount p1202-277, and it's our latest Lombard LiveJournal header.
