Right pics, wrong year

carole lombard made for each other 47a front

That's a photo of Carole Lombard with her scooter. Charming pic, but where's it from? Thankfully, it has a snipe, so we have an answer:

carole lombard made for each other 47a back

It's from "Made For Each Other," Carole's first excursion into drama after several years of comedies, and it's among five vintage photos from Selznick International publicity maven Russell Birdwell -- all of them with snipes -- now available at eBay. Bidding for all five begins at $24.99, with bids closing next Tuesday.

There's only one problem...the seller, who normally has a good track record on this sort of thing, committed a faux pas by listing these photos as being from 1948 -- six years after Lombard left us.

If you're interested in bidding on the scooter pic, visit http://www.ebay.com/itm/1948-Candid-Carole-Lombard-Made-For-Each-Other-VINTAGE-PHOTO-22M-/400314413767?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item5d349932c7.

Now for the other four, beginning with a photo of Carole and co-star James Stewart in a stateroom scene...but this has nothing to do with the Marx Brothers. It's at http://www.ebay.com/itm/1948-Candid-Carole-Lombard-James-Stewart-Made-For-Each-Other-VINTAGE-PHOTO-23M-/400314413689?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item5d34993279:

Next up, one we've run before -- a view from above of Lombard applying lipstick between scenes as Stewart and director John Cromwell wait. Learn more about it at http://www.ebay.com/itm/1948-Candid-Carole-Lombard-James-Stewart-Made-For-Each-Other-VINTAGE-PHOTO-24M-/380461137631?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item5895403edf:

Now, two of Lombard with 10-day-old Bonnie Belle Barber, who crosses genders to portray a baby boy as Cromwell and an assistant cameraman set up the scene.
