Now, time for the final five photos in our display of Carole Lombard/William Powell pictures now on sale at eBay ($14.99 each) through just before noon (Eastern) on Friday. As with the other images, Tally has brought them up to snuff, but the actual photos are 8" x 10", recently made in a lab, and are of top quality.

First, two photos from 1938, when Powell, recovering from a long illness, teamed with his ex-wife in a "Lux Radio Theater" adaptation of their hit "My Man Godfrey":

Photos of Lombard and Powell

The first two photos of Carole and Bill Powell on the radio shows how sick Bill really was. As I recall he survived prostrate cancer and Carole helped him get through that even though they were divorced. Bill later said to Larry Swindell that he doubted Carole really loved him romantically even when they were married. He didn't doubt however that she loved Russ deeply. I believe Powell was correct -- but there definitely was a deep bond between them. I guess we all wish we had friends like that! And I can see why both Russ and Clark were crazy about her.
