Welcome home, honeymooners



It's July 1931, and newlyweds Carole Lombard and William Powell have returned to Los Angeles from their honeymoon in Hawaii. Before leaving their ship, the couple was photographed by Paramount's Bert Longworth. A pair of close-ups of the Mr. & Mrs.:




And copy from the back of the photo:



Note that Powell had recently left Paramount for Warners, so Lombard gets top billing here. The marriage would last little more than two years, but Carole and Bill would remain friends (and of course team up for the 1936 screwball classic "My Man Godfrey").

This photo is 8 1/8" x 10" and in reasonably good condition with a little corner creasing. One bid, for $4.99, has been made as of this writing. The auction ends at 8:19 p.m. (Eastern) Friday.

If you're a Lombard or Powell fan, this image is right up your alley. If you want to get in on the bidding, visit https://www.ebay.com/itm/WILLIAM-POWELL-CAROLE-LOMBARD-Post-Hawaii-Honeymoon-B-Longworth-Pic-1931/154272562761?hash=item23eb5c7e49:g:6IQAAOSwA0tf78kb.
