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

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. Do either, or simply learn more, by going to

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. Check it out at
