Between two ill-fated ladies



Nearly five years ago, we ran this photo of William Powell and his recent divorcee, Carole Lombard (https://carole-and-co.livejournal.com/790512.html). On the other side in this 1933 pic is Columbia's newly-signed operatic star, the temperamental Grace Moore, who like Lombard would die in a plane crash (Jan. 26, 1947 in Copenhagen).

Until recently, I didn't know that another image of the trio existed. But it does:



It apparently was shot on the same evening. We also have the rear of the pic, where a heavy marking pencil has unfortunately seeped through to the other side:



The second photo measures 8" x 10", and you can buy it straight up for $29.99, or make an offer. If interested or curious, find out more at https://www.ebay.com/itm/Carole-Lombard-TRAGIC-STAR-ORIG-1940s-GRACE-MOORE-WILLIAM-POWELL-Photo-216/324123585688?hash=item4b77456c98:g:4EgAAOSwnTBefl~B.
