Looking back, with a smile

Discovering new publicity stills of Carole Lombard -- particularly of her Paramount p1202 series from 1930 to 1938 -- is always a thrill for me, and today I added another to my online family.

It's p1202-748 (above), from late 1933 or early 1934, showing Carole looking over her shoulder, wearing a floppy hat and giving a seductive smile.

I've seen similar pics from this session, such as p1202-773:

But p1202-748 is new to me.

Want the picture, which is 8" x 10" and looks to be original (though there are no markings or snipe on the back)? It's up for auction at eBay, with an opening bid of $49.99; the auction ends at 8:08 p.m. (Eastern) next Tuesday. Place your bid or check it out at https://www.ebay.com/itm/1934-GLAMOUR-EXQUISITE-CAROLE-LOMBARD-PORTRAIT-LOVELY-STUNNING-Photo-194/324063781883?hash=item4b73b4e3fb:g:U0wAAOSwbPleOehV.
