A still FOR a film, but not FROM one

This is Carole Lombard's RKO portrait CL-264, from "They Knew What They Wanted." No, not really. Her character in the 1940 drama, Amy, dressed like this...

...and this...

...and this:

Hardly the glamour type, right?

Getting back to the vintage portrait of Mrs. Gable at the top, it's 8" x 10", single-weight and in very fine condition. It's from the George Smoots collection.

Bidding opens at $39.99, with the auction closing at 10:41 p.m. (Eastern) Sunday. Want to learn more, or bid? Then go to https://www.ebay.com/itm/CAROLE-LOMBARD-Original-Vtg-1940-RKO-PORTRAIT-Photo-THEY-KNEW-WHAT-THEY-WANTED/372589986319?hash=item56c018020f/
