carole lombard p1202-537b

Meet the latest member of the family of Carole Lombard Paramount p1202 portraits. It's p1202-537 to be precise, from 1933, showing Carole in what might be described as a feminized version of a doughboy hat. You can see part of a diamond brooch at the bottom.

Think you may have seen this before? Perhaps you did, but in a different pose. At least five other p1202s of Lombard in that outfit are circulating, beginning (numerically) with p1202-526, which we know was taken by Otto Dyar:

Others include p1202-527, 528, 529 and 536:

The seller of p1202-537 notes that a snipe on the back "describes it as near the time of her role in the 1934 movie 'She Made Her Bed,' which interestingly she did not appear in." We pointed that out in "Looking back: June 1933" (http://carole-and-co.livejournal.com/518165.html), where Film Daily had reported she would play the lead:

The seller says this 8" x 10" original "has some creasing of the corners and a crease/scratch in the background over the hat." Nevertheless, it's in pretty good shape. If you'd like to own p1202-537, here's the info: the opening bid is $39.95, and bidding ends at 9:27 p.m. (Eastern) next Thursday. Still interested, or just curious?
