So you want to get negative?

Well, you can, at least where Carole Lombard is concerned -- but you're going to have to pay the price.

That image above, Paramount p1202-783 where Carole wears a sun hat while leaning against a post and showing off those marvelous Lombard legs, is available as a negative. According to the seller, this is the original and only negative of that 1934 portrait; it's 8" x 10", overall in good condition, and comes with a print.

And "pay the price" here is significant -- as in $149.99. Still interested? Then go to

The same seller has this Lombard negative for sale as well (though there's nothing negative about Carole's megawatt smile!), also for $149.99:

I'm guessing this to be from 1937, as I think that's the dress Carole wore in "True Confession." Again, according to the seller, this is the lone surviving negative of that photo, and it too is 8" x 10" and in good condition. To buy or learn more, visit

As of this writing, the seller has 120 Lombard images available; check them out at
