After a goof, a gem

As was said in "Some Like It Hot," nobody's perfect, and that certainly applies to me. I work in the late night/early morning hours coming up with entries for "Carole & Co.", and sometimes my judgment thus isn't what it should be. Upon further review, I have removed an entry of a picture that was not of Carole Lombard (with Clark Gable), and I apologize for the error.

In its place, a photo that's definitely of Carole Lombard, taken by arguably the greatest of all portrait photographers, George Hurrell:

Need proof of its authenticity? Here it is:

It's being sold at eBay ("auction" isn't the right word, since the price is $475 under the "buy it now" option), but you do have 20 days or so to scrape up the cash before someone else claims it; the deadline is just after 3:16 p.m. (Estern) on July 6.

Mea culpa.
