'Nothing Sacred,' everything glamorous

"Nothing Sacred" is renowned as the only feature Carole Lombard made in three-strip Technicolor. But, as we all know, Lombard didn't need color to exude glamour, and here's proof -- a black-and-white publicity still for "Nothing Sacred." I don't believe this was actually from the film, which is just as well, because it would be hard to imagine the character of Hazel Flagg -- who honestly couldn't be defined as sexy -- looking anything like this:

If you don't believe this is from "Nothing Sacred," here's the bottom of the still, showing that it indeed is from the Selznick picture:

You can own this original alluring portrait of Lombard...but a word of warning: many others want it, too. As of this writing, four bids have already been made on this 1937 still -- and while the high bid to date is only $7.80, the bidding doesn't expire until 10L26 p.m. (Eastern) next Sunday. So with just under a week to go, expect the price on this one to go quite a bit higher. (And deservedly so.)

We'll leave you with a close-up of Carole, a woman who could make the plainest of characters seem glamorous:
