Three new p1202 for you

Studying Carole Lombard's Paramount publicity stills, usually categorized under the p1202 label (Lombard's studio player code number), help show how she evolved over the seven-plus years she worked there. And three more of these have emerged -- and the good news for collectors of Carole memorabilia is that all are now available at eBay.

We'll begin with p1202-131, a profile of a smiling Lombard from sometime in 1931:

Fast forward to 1933 and p1202-477:

The outfit and hair indicate this was from the same session Eugene Robert Richee photographed that produced 479, 480 and 483, shown below:

Finally, let's move up to 1937, when Carole was at her commercial peak, and this lovely image:

She really exudes some serene confidence there, doesn't she?

None of these 8" x 10" photos are originals; all of them are gorgeous, and can be purchased for $14.99. For p1202-131, visit http://www.ebay.com/itm/Carole-Lombard-8x10-Photo-D1081-/110821925100?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item19cd8060ec. For p1202-477, go to http://www.ebay.com/itm/Carole-Lombard-8x10-Photo-D1083-/120856594778?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item1c239d495a.

At last count, the seller has 67 Lombard photos, and you can see them at http://stores.ebay.com/movie-material-store/_i.html?_nkw=Carole+Lombard&submit=Search&_sid=184728870. Some aren't from Paramount at all, such as this seductive shot from the late 1920s, showing the leggy young Lombard draped in, well, not very much:

It's also $14.99, and is at http://www.ebay.com/itm/Carole-Lombard-8x10-Photo-D1093-/110821930944?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item19cd8077c0.
