'Sacred' water



Carole Lombard spent quite a bit of screen time in or around water in 1937. Here, she's at Lake Arrowhead with co-star Fred MacMurray; not long before that, Carole found herself in a far less placid aquatic environment for "Nothing Sacred." Want proof? Take a look at these two pics. First:



Then, after Lombard's watery sojourn, her Hazel Flagg character put on a firefighter's outfit once she escaped:



Each pic is a vintage 8" x 10" from Selznick International Pictures, and are from the late, renowned Collectors Book Store in Hollywood. Each is in excellent condition. Bids for each begin at $24.95, and both auctions close at 10:01 p.m. (Eastern) Sunday.
