More 'stylish striking' pictures



Today;s entry features some more delightful Carole Lombard photos available via eBay. Take this, for example, a heretofore unseen image of her taken at Columbia, although I can't immediately associate it with any of the five films she made there. Nor is there any information on the back.

All I know is that it's another from the George Smoots collection, an 8" x 10" single-weight in excellent conditions, which the seller describes as a "stylish striking portrait." I fully agree.

One bid has been made as of this writing, for $39.99; the auction is scheduled to close at 10:12 p.m. (Eastern) Sunday. If you'd like to top that bid, or merely find out more, visit https://www.ebay.com/itm/CAROLE-LOMBARD-in-STYLISH-STRIKING-PORTRAIT-Original-1930s-COLUMBIA-Photo/143552867013?_trkparms=aid%3D111001%26algo%3DREC.SEED%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D20160811114145%26meid%3Db622af4ffad745fc822d85d957d4bf66%26pid%3D100667%26rk%3D3%26rkt%3D8%26mehot%3Dnone%26sd%3D143274593513%26itm%3D143552867013%26pmt%3D0%26noa%3D1%26pg%3D2334524&_trksid=p2334524.c100667.m2042.

Here's another pic, apparently from 1934:



This one formerly resided in the Photoplay magazine library:



It also goes for $39.99, though you can either buy it straight up or make an offer.

Another seller has this Carole Columbia image:



It's not in the best of shape, listed as "brittle, with chips around the edges" and a slight tear. On the other hand, it's now discounted from $20 to $17.60, although you can make an offer on this one too.
