Carole Lombard showed plenty of fashion sense in the screwball classic "My Man Godfrey"...but one of the items she wore wouldn't pass muster 82 years after the film was released.



That's monkey fur Lombard is wearing over a black satin cape, stylish if not PC. If you don't believe she's shed in simian, take a look at the back of the pic:



Straight from the studio's mouth.
