Carole Lombard's arrival at RKO in the spring of 1939, for the likes of "In Name Only" (a publicity still for which is shown above), coincided with her long-sought marriage to Clark Gable. That accomplishment infused Carole with confidence, and it showed in her fashion photographs.

Yet another photo from the noted George Smoots collection, this 8" x 10" is on glossy single-weight paper. It's said to be in excellent condition.
