Three types of Paramount glamour

By 1935, Carole Lombard was firmly among Hollywood's most glamorous stars, so her home studio of Paramount intensified the glamour treatment. Three versions of this glamour, produced within months of each other, are portraits currently up for auction at eBay.

To kick things off, p1202-1415:

It's an original 8" x 10" with some creases in the border area. Bidding begins at $29.99 and concludes at 5:08 p.m. (Eastern) Saturday. If you think you'd like to own this, go to http://cgi.ebay.com/1936-CAROLE-LOMBARD-ORIGINAL-GLAMOUR-PHOTO-/190563222835?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item2c5e740533.

That's the fashion side of Carole -- now, the sporty side. And the good news about this one, p1202-1195, is that it comes with a snipe. The bad news is it only measures 4" x 5", half the size of your usual publicity photo:

Note the snipe refers to "Hands Across The Table," but it's been crossed out and replaced with a reference to "The Princess Comes Across." (It's believed Hearst's Los Angeles Examiner used this photo.) Bidding begins at $19.95 and ends at 8:52 p.m. (Eastern) Saturday. To get this, a nice gift for any of your tennis-playing friends, visit http://cgi.ebay.com/Shes-Aces-Orig-1935-CAROLE-LOMBARD-pub-photo-tennis-/190563264321?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item2c5e74a741.

Finally, from net-loving Carole to pet-loving Carole, and her companion in this, p1202-1232, is none other than her beloved Pekingese, Pushface:

Released in the fall of 1935 (the snipe on the back refers to "Hands Across The Table"), it's 8" x 10" and in excellent condition. Bids start at $21.99, and you only have a little while to enter, since bids end at 8:31 a.m. (Eastern) Friday.
