Two from the Argentine

Carole Lombard never visited Argentina, but her photos have, and two of them that have circulated there are now being auctioned at eBay. We'll start with this sublime portrait:

We're not sure who took it, but we know what it was taken for -- to promote her Selznick International film "Made For Each Other":

The seller, from Buenos Aires, says it measures 8" x 10" and is in very good to excellent condition. The minimum bid is $49.99, with bids closing at 10:09 a.m. (Eastern) Wednesday. Want to learn more? Visit http://www.ebay.com/itm/CAROLE-LOMBARD-VINTAGE-1930-S-PHOTO-/221207362560?pt=Art_Photo_Images&hash=item3380fc7c00.

That same seller has this sultry picture available:

I could probably tell you more about it if I could detect what was in its lower right-hand corner (not seen above), but somewhere along the way, someone marked over it:

Information on this photo is similar to the first one, with the sole difference being that bidding for this one ends at 10:34 a.m. Wednesday. If interested, go to http://www.ebay.com/itm/CAROLE-LOMBARD-dazziling-VINTAGE-1930-S-PHOTO-2-/221207374672?pt=Art_Photo_Images&hash=item3380fcab50.

Now the latest on the 2013 Favorite Classic Movie Actress Tourney semifinals: As of 10 a.m. (Eastern), 1930s champion Lombard is running strongly, leading '50s winner Doris Day, 24-8. The other semifinal is nearly as lopsided, with '40s winner Bette Davis ahead of surprise '60s champ Diana Rigg, 23-9. If you haven't voted yet, do so at http://poohtiger-allgoodthings.blogspot.com/, and note that voting ends at 6 p.m. (Eastern) Tuesday.
