Meet '-935' from 1935



Discovering a previously unseen Carole Lombard Paramount p1202 portrait is always welcome, and so is this one, p1202-935. While the fur somewhat dates the image, it remains a stunning, stylish pic of Lombard. Even better, we know who photographed it...



...the studio's ace image-taker, Eugene Robert Richee, likely for her latest film, "Rumba." Here is the back, enlarged somewhat:



It's an original 8" x 10" single-weight from the George Smoots collection, in excellent condition. And it can be yours.

Bidding opens at $39.99, with the auction ending at 10:12 p.m. (Eastern) Sunday. Want it? Then visit https://www.ebay.com/itm/CAROLE-LOMBARD-STYLISH-USE-OF-SHADOW-Original-1935-RICHEE-Stamp-PORTRAIT-Photo/143411522225?hash=item2163fe2ab1:g:LP8AAOSwwzZdo7cs.
