The return of that 'tablecloth' for 'Breakfast'

carole lombard love before breakfast 25c

"Love Before Breakfast" really isn't one of Carole Lombard's most distinctive movies, but one of the truly distinctive things about it is a loud, plaid outfit that almost looks as if she tore it off the kitchen table and remodeled it into a dress. And another image of her in it -- and wearing gloves to boot -- now is up for auction at eBay:

Other than the film's title, nothing is on the back of the photo:

It's a vintage 8" x 10" with margins on glossy single weight paperstock. According to the seller, it's "Fine with some edge and handling wear. Crinkled lower left corner and surface scrape from left edge."

Two bids have been made as of this writing, topping at $6.50, with the auction set to close at 9:38 p.m. (Eastern) a week from today. To get in on the action or merely learn more, visit http://www.ebay.com/itm/1936-CAROLE-LOMBARD-PHOTOGRAPH-LOVE-BEFORE-BREAKFAST-MADCAP-COMEDY-PIN-UP-BEAUTY-/371148522706?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item566a2d04d2.

The Lombard LiveJournal header shifts to Paramount p1202-583, with a feathery Carole staring into the camera.
