Two rare Sennett photos, as well as two others

Carole Lombard's tenure at Mack Sennett raced by in less than two years, but she learned a lot about comedy during her time there. And while the image above, from "Run, Girl, Run," one of her best-known Sennett two-reelers, is relatively common, there are some photos from that period you don't come across very often.

Two of them, both original 8" x 10" stills, are being auctioned at eBay -- but if you want them, you better hurry, as bidding is slated to end today.

First, Lombard from the 1928 film "The Bicycle Flirt":



Lombard defines '28 chic in her cloche hat and trim dress. Two bids have been made on this photo as of this writing, with the high bid at $13.15. Bids close at 4 p.m. (Eastern) today, so if you want to get in on it, don't dally -- ride your figurative bicycle over to http://cgi.ebay.com/ORIGINAL-1928-STUDIO-Movie-Photo-Carole-Lombard-/370504076687?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item5643c38d8f.

"The Bicycle Flirt" is one of the better known Lombard-era Sennetts. The same can't be said for the 1927 entry, "Gold Digger Of Weepah," from which this still originates:



Lombard was an uncredited extra on this Billy Bevan vehicle; that's her standing just below the "fortune teller" sign. Three bids have been made at the time of writing, topping off at $16.49, and bidding ends at 3:32 p.m. (Eastern) today.

The seller of both of the above stills has a few more of Lombard available, of which two are of special interest. First, this 7 1/2" x 9 1/2" of Carole, from 1931's "Man Of The World":



As I write this, one bid, for $9.99, has been made; bids close at 6:23 p.m. (Eastern). To try your luck, go to http://cgi.ebay.com/ORIGINAL-1931-STUDIO-Movie-Photo-Carole-Lombard-/260773273484?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item3cb74c5f8c.

Move ahead a year to 1932's "No More Orchids," and this 8" x 10" shot of Lombard with Lyle Talbot:



The slight tears may explain why no one has bid on this yet (bids open at $9.99). Bids will conclude at 3:49 p.m. (Eastern). To place a bid or learn more, check out http://cgi.ebay.com/ORIGINAL-1932-STUDIO-Movie-Photo-Carole-Lombard-/370504073796?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item5643c38244.
