Following a day in which the U.S. Supreme Court solidified same-sex marriage, it seemed appropriate to have a "Carole & Co." entry where the topic was "The Gay Bride," Carole Lombard's only film for MGM. (It's not a very good movie, but nowhere as bad as Lombard claimed it was.) This deals with a portrait of Lombard and co-star Chester Morris...

Bull took several solo photos of Lombard for the film, but this is the first I've seen which pairs her with Morris.

It's an 8" x 10" double-weight semi-gloss, slightly trimmed, in excellent condition. It's being sold for $99.95; to purchase it or learn more, visit http://www.ebay.com/itm/CAROLE-LOMBARD-CHESTER-MORRIS-VINTAGE-8x10-PHOTO-BY-CLARENCE-BULL-THE-GAY-BRIDE-/190862478000?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item2c704a4ab0.

Carol McArthur performed it earlier this year, and it's followed by a conversation with Hunt about how she wrote the song:
