'To Be' on set with Lubitsch

Here's a still from "To Be Or Not To Be" I've never seen before: Carole Lombard, between takes on the set, getting instructions from director Ernst Lubitsch. Working with the master of sophisticated comedy was a dream come true for Carole, who died before the film's release.

The picture is mounted in a large frame...

...and at bottom the movie is identified:

The photo is 8" x 10", in very good condition.

One bid for it, at $19.99, already has been made; the auction is set to close at 6:20 p.m. (Eastern) Monday. If you'd like to get on on the bidding for this rarity, go to https://www.ebay.com/itm/TO-BE-OR-NOT-TO-BE-1942-Carole-Lombard-set-still-Alexander-Korda/123805829238?hash=item1cd3670876:g:ttAAAOSwIildCBGa.
