Two stunning pics, plus a fast start in the tourney

First of all, some good news for Carole Lombard fans: She's off and running, with a 28-7 lead over Joan Crawford as of midnight (Eastern) in one of the Silents/1930s semifinals in the 2012 Favorite Classic Movie Actress Tourney. (In the other match, Ginger Rogers has a 26-13 edge over Greta Garbo.) Don't get complacent, though; cast your vote for Carole at http://mythicalmonkey.blogspot.com before 7 p.m. (Eastern) Thursday.

Now, some memorabilia news, specifically about two original photos available through eBay. We'll start with one from "Nothing Sacred":

This portrait -- which was also used as part of an ad for Elizabeth Arden cosmetics -- measures 8" x 10", and is listed in very good to excellent condition "with a few light pinholes on the top center border," according to the seller.

If you're interested in this glamorous shot of Carole, you can buy it straight up for $150 or make an offer. Find out more at http://www.ebay.com/itm/Original-1930s-CAROLE-LOMBARD-Art-Deco-RADIANCE-Selznick-Portrait-Photo-/260989257636?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_2&hash=item3cc42c07a4.

The other image is from 1935 and is one I've never seen before, p1202-1057:

It's an 8" x 10" doubleweight of Carole in crinoline, and it apparently lacks a snipe (same with the other one). The seller calls it in "very good condition except for some wear along the top edge."

Bidding on this begins at $9.99, but the price will likely increase substantially before bids end at 7:12 p.m. (Eastern) next Sunday. If you're interested, check it out at http://www.ebay.com/itm/Carole-Lombard-ORIGINAL-1935-publicity-portrait-double-weight-/260987682652?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item3cc413ff5c.

This week's LiveJournal header is from "Mr. & Mrs. Smith," as Carole plays barber. Somebody have styptic pencils handy!
