Lombard, Lupe and lots of Lux starpower

Carole now is part of a Lux-related auction at eBay...and if this was the cast of a movie, it would be up there with "Grand Hotel." Imagine her alongside Lupe Velez...

...not to mention Robert Montgomery, Wallace Beery, Kay Francis and Irene Dunne. Star-studded, doncha think?

These nine were among an array of film folk who appeared in a Lux-sponsored promotion. Here's Carole's photo:
