Three from the early '30s

Here are a triumvirate of Carole Lombard items from the early 1930s, her initial years at Paramount, being auctioned at eBay.

First, this image from 1930, p1202-76:

It's an original photo, a lovely pose of Lombard in a gown. There is a significant tear on the left side, but other than that, it's in very good condition.

This item is being auctioned with a starting bid of $24.99, but hurry; bidding closes at 7:43 p.m. (Eastern) tonight. To find out more, go to http://cgi.ebay.com/1930s-vint-CAROLE-LOMBARD-stunning-GLAMOR-photo-/270680975720?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item3f05d7e968.

In 1930, Lombard began her Paramount tenure with a supporting role in the Charles "Buddy" Rogers vehicle "Safety In Numbers." A glass slide promoting the film is now available:

There's a crack in the slide and assorted smudges (including one near Lombard's eye), but otherwise it's in decent shape for its 80-year-old age.

You can buy the slide straight up for $9.59 (marked down from $11.99), or make an offer. The sale closes at 1:49 p.m. (Eastern) Thursday, and for those who collect Lombard slides, this would be a rare addition.

Finally, Carole (by now with "e" in her first name) and car:

It's Paramount p1202-322, probably taken on the studio lot. (The seller believes the photo to be from 1935, but the number on the photo -- and her hairstyle -- indicates it's probably from about 1932.) I believe it's a reproduction, not an original, but we know it's an 8" x 10" glossy.

Bidding opens at $6.99 (no bids have been made as of this writing), with bids closing at 2:30 p.m. (Eastern) Thursday. Check it out at http://cgi.ebay.com/Carole-Lombard-Leans-Her-Car-Candid-Photo-/380299975910?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item588ba51ce6.
