Plenty to 'Confess' about

That's a charming photo of Carole Lombard on the phone from "True Confession" (1937), her final film at Paramount. Even better, it's an original, and here's the snipe on the back:

Six other images from that film also are up for auction, and here they are:

That's Una Merkel -- every 1930s film heroine's best friend -- with Lombard in the first and third pictures, third-billed John Barrymore in the first and second, and co-star Fred MacMurray in the fourth and fifth.

As of this writing, the top pic has had one bid, for $10; the other photos have initial bids of $8 to $10, and auctions for all seven end on Sunday. You can bid or find out more by visiting http://www.ebay.com/sch/m.html?_odkw=&_ssn=mangiamo&item=321816431141&_osacat=0&_from=R40&_trksid=p2046732.m570.l1313.TR4.TRC1.A0.H0.Xtrue+confession.TRS0&_nkw=true+confession&_sacat=0.
