'Dressing' with Bing

Carole Lombard, like many of Paramount's leading ladies of the mid-thirties, became a co-star for up-and-coming singer Bing Crosby. (About the only two not called upon for such chores were Marlene Dietrich and Claudette Colbert.) Lombard's vehicle was "We're Not Dressing," from early 1934, and two vintage stills from that film have resurfaced on eBay.

This shows the leads in a rather awkward romantic embrace. The asking price is $79.99, or you can make an offer. Get the details at https://www.ebay.com/itm/Carole-Lombard-Bing-Crosby-Romantic-ORINGINAL-1934-Art-Deco-Glamour-Photo/392235923009?hash=item5b53153641:g:snkAAOSwZlZaIvl0:rk:39:pf:0.

The other looks a bit more natural to my eyes, but it's valued at a mere $49.99, again with the "make offer" option.
