That's a sexy seaside photo of Carole Lombard and Gary Cooper, isn't it? Well, about two years earlier, in the spring of 1931, they made a film (on land) together, the rarely seen (and nearly lost) "I Take This Woman" (http://community.livejournal.com/carole_and_co/45444.html). And a publicity still from that movie is now available at eBay:
There's dialogue on the bottom (Cooper saying, "I fell for you -- but the laugh's on me..."), signifying this was used as a lobby card of sorts in theaters, not sent out to newspapers.
You can make a bid for it at $149.99 (none have been made as yet), or if you really want this photo (it's a vintage picture, nearly 80 years old), you can buy it for $249.99. If unsold, it will be available through 10:22 p.m. (Eastern) on Monday.

Cooper and Lombard (she was apparently yet another of his off-screen bedroom conquests, though it never went much beyond that) would make one more film together, "Now And Forever" in 1934, in which both were arguably upstaged by 6-year-old Shirley Temple.
