Ain't nobody here but (Clark, Carole and) us chickens

Remember this photo we ran some time back?

Just your everyday husband-and-wife Southern California chicken farmers in the summer of 1939 -- except, of course, that he has an Academy Award to his credit and she was among the nation's most highly-salaried women. However, that wasn't the only shot taken of Clark Gable and Carole Lombard in their new rural roles. Another photo has just cropped up:

It was taken on Aug. 7, 1939 by the Wide World photo syndicate, which provided this information on the back of the photo:

If you'd like to own this souvenir of Clark and Carole gone country, you can. It's being auctioned at eBay (http://cgi.ebay.com/1939-Original-Photo-CAROLE-LOMBARD-CLARK-GABLE_W0QQitemZ260402293581QQcmdZViewItemQQptZLH_DefaultDomain_0?hash=item260402293581&_trksid=p3286.c0.m14&_trkparms=66%3A4%7C65%3A1%7C39%3A1%7C240%3A1318%7C301%3A0%7C293%3A1%7C294%3A200).

The minimum bid is 99 cents (no bids have been placed as of yet). However, bidding is scheduled to end at 10:39 p.m. (Eastern) on May 6, so expect the price on this to soon top the cost of a bucket of chicken at your local KFC or Popeyes.
