Came across these Lombard photos recently, and thought you might appreciate viewing them.
I think this sepia shot derives from a British newspaper in the early thirties. Lombard never minded showing off her legs, and the public never minded seeing them.
More leg art, likely from the Sennett era.
Probably from 1932 or '33, given the lightness of her hair.
From a little later in the thirties.
One more leg shot, but this time they're wrapped in silk stockings complementing her dress and shoes.
If someone somehow put together a book showing every studio publicity photo Carole Lombard ever made, going back to the mid-twenties, let's just say it would be a pretty hefty volume.
