Shirley (and Carole), no jest

carole lombard now and forever 06d

Until today, I believed this was the only photo extant showing Carole Lombard and Shirley Temple by themselves in the 1934 Paramount vehicle "Now And Forever." But I was wrong -- and am glad to be wrong, too. Take a look at this charming picture of them.

This is an original black-and-white, doubleweight photo measuring 7.5" x 10"; the seller lists it in "very good" condition, adding "there is some minor wear to the surface." Here's what the back looks like -- there's no information of note, just the actresses' names:

As of this writing, no bids have been made, a bit surprising for a relatively obscure photo featuring two bona fide legends. The opening bid is $9.99, and the auction closes at 9:40 p.m. (Eastern) Sunday -- in other words, about the time the Super Bowl will be winding down. Want to "run for daylight" with this gem? Then go to http://www.ebay.com/itm/Shirley-Temple-and-Carole-Lombard-original-DW-photo-1934-Now-and-Forever-/381136958645?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_2&hash=item58bd8874b5.

In closing, let's note the passing of poet and composer Rod McKuen at age 81. His style was a perfect fit for the late 1960s, and his songs were recorded by many artists...including Frank Sinatra. In fact, Frank had a minor hit in the fall of 1969 with this romantic reflection, "Love's Been Good To Me." (Like another Sinatra gem, "It Was A Very Good Year," this previously had been recorded by the Kingston Trio.)
