Add three heretofore unseen (at least by me and at Carla Valderrama's photo archive at carolelombard.org) images, all from the same seller, to the Carole Lombard p1202 Paramount gallery. None of them are original vintage photos, but all were struck from original studio negatives in the early '70s, and all are double-weight; two of them measure 11" x 14".
It begins with p1202-63 above, from late 1930 or early '31. If the shirt Lombard's wearing looks familiar, it's because you've probably seen it in the more common p1202-61:
P1202-63 has a minimum bid price of $49.95; bidding will close at 9:51 p.m. (Eastern) next Sunday. You can find out more by visiting http://www.ebay.com/itm/CAROLE-LOMBARD-Rare-Early-1930s-11x14-PORTRAIT-Paramount-Studio-HOLLYWOOD-PHOTO-/390484705195?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item5aeab3bfab.
Fast-forward to 1936 or early '37 for p1202-1328, Carole in fur:
Bidding for this starts at $39.95, with bids ending at 9:54 p.m. (Eastern) Sunday. More information is available at http://www.ebay.com/itm/CAROLE-LOMBARD-Dramatic-11x14-Glamour-PORTRAIT-Paramount-Studio-HOLLYWOOD-PHOTO-/390470196599?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item5ae9d65d77.
The third pic, a mere 8" x 10", is p1202-580:
There is no auction for this item; it can only be bought for $29.95. To purchase this, or look it over, go to http://www.ebay.com/itm/CAROLE-LOMBARD-Glamour-Portrait-Superb-1930s-PARAMOUNT-Studio-HOLLYWOOD-PHOTO-/390483815168?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item5aeaa62b00.
This week's LiveJournal header shows Lombard with a group of children in a scene from "Vigil In The Night." It's entirely possible some of those kids may still be with us today and might have some memories of Carole.
