Carole & Fred...and Carole & Fred...and Carole & Fred...

If you're a fan of Carole Lombard's "Hands Across The Table" -- more specifically, if you're a fan of Lombard and Fred MacMurray in "Hands Across The Table" -- this image is the equivalent of hitting the jackpot:

There's Carole and Fred all over the place, with director Mitchell Leisen thrown in as a bonus.

Someone used Photoshop rather well, you think...but you would be wrong. This is not a recent creation of an imaginative classic Hollywood buff -- this montage was apparently created at the time (1935), probably by Paramount's publicity department.

A vintage photographic negative of this image is now up for auction at eBay; the starting bid is $14 and bidding closes at 11:35 p.m. (Eastern) next Thursday. If you want to bid or just have interest, visit http://www.ebay.com/itm/8X10-B-W-Photo-Negative-CAROLE-LOMBARD-Hands-Across-Table-c-1935-/190580308852?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item2c5f78bb74.

Nice pics (about 10) in that montage, but I'm a little surprised this one didn't make the cut:
