This window card 'Comes Across'

"The Princess Comes Across" may not be top-tier Carole Lombard (shown with Alison Skipworth), but it has its charms, not the least of which is Lombard using a mock Swedish accent as she tries to pass herself off as a Swedish princess sailing across the Atlantic, bound for Hollywood and film fame.

An artifact from that film that I've never seen before is currently being auctioned at eBay. It's a window card, but instead of measuring the usual 14" x 22", it's a mere 14" x 18" (evidently the top part, in which the theater's name and dates the film was playing would appear, was cut off; you can't tell whether or not it had been used for that purpose):

Want a closeup of Carole? You've got it:

It's got a few smudges and signs of wear, but for something three-quarters of a century old, it's in reasonably good shape.

Bids on this begin at $149.99; as of this writing, no bids have been placed. Bidding ends at 9:03 p.m. (Eastern) next Tuesday. If you're interested in this item, visit http://cgi.ebay.com/CAROLE-LOMBARD-PRINCESS-COMES-ACROSS-WINDOW-CARD-1936-/380338909419?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item588df730eb.
