Something "dull" about Lombard?



It's not an adjective Carole's regularly tagged with, certainly not regarding her personality. So, just what's "dull" about the above picture?

Well, let's check its backside:



Since I couldn't make hide nor hair of it, I contacted the seller, who put up a new version...which is when I finally released what I first viewed was upside down. Here's the snipe, enlarged:



It reads:
"STYLE-SETTER
A new material and color is introduced by blonde actress Carole Lombard, Paramount player. The material is called deep ply velour and the color is a dull shade of tomato red."


Well, that explains everything.
