The horizontal Lombard

No, Carole's not like this...

...or this...

...but this (love that sly look on her face(:

What's "horizontal" about this isn't so much Lombard as the shape of the image. Most solo fashion stills taken during the Golden Age were vertical images; horizontals were few and far between. This was taken for RKO, as we learn from its backside:

Here it is in close-up:

It's an original, 9.5" x 7", in excellent condition aside from minimal fading. It's being offered by an Australian seller for $142.71 US (that's $200 in Aussie currency) or you can make an offer.
