Carole and Shirley, 'Now And Forever'



As we remain in self-isolation, let's celebrate Carole Lombard and her last surviving co-star, Shirley Temple, in their 1934 Paramount drama "Now And Forever." Within months, Temple would become a mega-star at Twentieth Century-Fox, and years later she praised Lombard for her generous personality while never patronizing her.

The above still is an 8" x 10", with an opening bid of $39.99; the auction ends at 8:12 p.m. (Eastern) Wednesday. If you're interested, go to https://www.ebay.com/itm/Carole-Lombard-Shirley-Temple-and-Gary-Cooper-NOW-AND-FOREVER-1937-Photo-216/324117487260?hash=item4b76e85e9c:g:0t0AAOSwN8JefmFa.

The same seller has this 8" x 10" film publicity still, where the pair are joined by Gary Cooper:
