Carole and Cary...real dolls in an unreal story

Carole Lombard and Cary Grant are shown in the only film in which they co-starred, the 1939 romantic drama "In Name Only." Yet, an item has popped up on eBay that enables one to imagine an alternate universe, one where they're the leads in another movie -- perhaps the screwball comedy we so wish they had made together had fate not intervened. Ladies and gentlemen, I introduce to you..."Honeymoon In Paris":

Yes, this "story" involves Carole and Cary paper dolls, shown below:

They have outfits for their romantic adventure, from the ocean liner...

...to sightseeing and shopping in the fabled French capital...

...Maxim's and the opera...

...even an appearance at the Beaux-Arts Ball:

Nice settings; now all we need is a plot to go with it. Then again, that's not the intent of creating paper dolls.

This rare item was created for a 1998 paper doll convention, whose theme was Paris:

Like other stars, Lombard has long been a paper doll favorite (http://carole-and-co.livejournal.com/477174.html).

The booklet, kept by an avid collector, is said to be in near-mint condition and measures 12" x 9". Bidding begins at $15, and closes at 9:20 p.m. (Eastern) Sunday. Interested, or curious?
