She springs into action

I have so many Carole Lombard images in my collection that it's sometimes hard to keep track...but I'm fairly certain I don't have this one, because I'm pretty sure I'd remember it. Judging from the Paramount P1202 number (632), it looks to be from about 1933 -- and Carole appears as if she's getting ready to push herself off the wall and pounce on you. (Not that many of us, particularly males, would object to such a move.)

I love the look on her face...her long, sleek arms...the dress that shows off her splendid figure. In short, this photo is a winner, even if it's not an original. It's an 8" x 10" digital reproduction that had sold for $6.99, but has now been marked down to $4.99 under the eBay "buy it now" option.

If you want it, go to http://cgi.ebay.com/Carole-Lombard-8-X-10-Black-White-Photo-/230441421031?cmd=ViewItem&pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item35a76108e7, but note that the sale is scheduled to end early Saturday (Eastern), so hurry.
