A few new pics for you

When you run across a Carole Lombard image you've never seen before, it's cause for celebration. When you come across several, it's cause for exultation. We'll run three of them today and save the other three for tomorrow.

Only one of them is from the Paramount p1202 series of portraits -- specifically, p1202-1205:

Think you've seen that dress before? You possibly have, in p1202-1201...

...and p1202-1204:

carole lombard p1202-1204b

Uniike those two, p1202-1205 has a snipe on the back that tells more about the outfit:

The snipe mentions "Hands Across The Table," and the following photo probably has ties to that film, judging from Carole's outfit and the date the picture ran:

carole lombard hands across the table 42a front

The next pic is said to have something to do with "To Be Or Not To Be," and it certainly looks like Lombard in late 1941:

This pic and p1202-1205 have an opening bid price of $50; the one of Carole on the set starts at $100. Bidding on all three ends between noon and 1 p.m. (Eastern) next Saturday.

I often wonder...

What happened to Carole's wardrobe? Were her personal belongings ever up for auction? I really love her style and would love to know where all of the fabulous dresses she wore ended up. It would be great to have more information on this.
