Lombard-palooza, part 3

Now, the final group of photos of Carole Lombard being sold at eBay until shortly after noon (Eastern) today. All of them feature Carole with others, with three featuring her first husband and two other images relating to one of her movies. (And all can be bought for $14.99 each.)

But first, a portrait of Lombard with the woman she was closest to in her life...her mother:



This charming photo of Carole and Elizabeth Peters is at http://cgi.ebay.com/CAROLE-LOMBARD-POSES-HER-MOTHER-PHOTO-/190474598186?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item2c592bb72a.

Here's Lombard in a group shot of the Selznick film "Made For Each Other," with co-star James Stewart to her left and director John Cromwell to her right:

There was one cast member not in the group shot for both child labor laws and because it likely was bedtime. We're referring to Bonnie Belle Barber, who plays the newborn. "Mother" Carole does some character bonding in this delightful shot:



Oh baby, is that cute -- and you can learn more about it at http://cgi.ebay.com/CAROLE-LOMBARD-LOOKS-BABY-CANDID-PHOTO-/200549554844?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item2eb1af5a9c

Now for a trio with William Powell. First up, Bill and Carole dancing at the Cocoanut Grove in 1933; this may have been one of their post-divorce outings that led some to incorrectly assume they would remarry:



Next, Powell and Lombard at the Ambassador Hotel (site of the Cocoanut Grove) with Mary Carlisle (who will turn 99 Feb. 3) and James Gleason:



The last Lombard-Powell pic finds them at a costume party (with Carole wearing that 1890s outfit we saw her in early last month). We're not sure who the other woman is, but the man without the mustache is Clive Brook, British leading man whose films included "Shanghai Express" and "Cavalcade."

Two more photos remain. First, Carole and Una Merkel take a break during work on "True Confession," on location at Lake Arrowhead:

The Lombard-palooza ends at the El Mirador in Palm Springs, where Carole is seen with Paul Lukas, whom she worked with in "No One Man," and a fine comedic character actor she never collaborated with, Eric Blore:



And this image is available at http://cgi.ebay.com/CAROLE-LOMBARD-PAUL-LUKAS-ERIC-BLORE-PALM-SPRINGS-PHOTO-/200549554920?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item2eb1af5ae8.

Once more, my kudos to Tally for her wonderful work on these photos.
