When it's nice to be negative

Yesterday, I moved into my Los Angeles apartment (well, sort of...the furniture was supposed to arrive, but never did). Since I couldn't do very much, I walked around the floor and discovered that behind the building, someone was keeping a rooster which I heard crowing, but never saw. Of course, Carole Lombard had a rooster, too -- good old Edmund -- and they're pictured here in Paramount p1202-1440.

Now, you can buy the original 8" 10" negative of this portrait for $149.99; to learn more, visit http://www.ebay.com/itm/CAROLE-LOMBARD-Portrait-Original-NEGATIVE-176H-/191237024481?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item2c869d6ae1.

Three other shots are available:

* A headshot of a smiling Carole (http://www.ebay.com/itm/CAROLE-LOMBARD-Portrait-Original-NEGATIVE-175H-/380943748197?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item58b2044c65)

* A leggy Lombard poolside portrait, complete with sombrero (http://www.ebay.com/itm/CAROLE-LOMBARD-Portrait-Original-NEGATIVE-177H-/351111277647?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item51bfdcec4f)

* The star modeling a long gown with a plaid jacket (http://www.ebay.com/itm/CAROLE-LOMBARD-Portrait-Original-NEGATIVE-174H-/380943748228?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item58b2044c84)

All also are being sold straight up for $149.99.

Oh, and one more thing: Rest assured I won't be awakened every morning by a poultry alarm clock -- I couldn't hear the rooster from my apartment room. Good news once that furniture finally arrives. And in honor of that animal, here's Fats Domino (whom I saw in concert in the '80s -- no performer I've seen exudes more warmth) with, appropriately, "The Rooster Song":
