Another fabulous Carole Lombard image is now available via eBay from Hollywood Paper. This one was taken by RKO's Alex Kahle in 1939 to promote "In Name Only." It's an 8" x 10" whose borders have been trimmed, resulting in its measuring 7 1/2" x 9 1/4". While that really doesn't affect the image any, part of the snipe on the back was sacrificed in the process:
Thankfully, there's still enough information to provide a good description of what Lombard is wearing, including colors (chartreuse and rose?):
One wonders how many editors would have contributed to a fund to buy this luckless RKO publicist a typewriter with legible characters.
You can buy this vintage photo (listed in very good condition) straight up for $89.95 or bid, beginning at $79.95, in which case bidding ends at 10:36 p.m. (Eastern) next Monday.
