That's no park bench

This Carole Lombard image is up for auction at eBay, and it's headlined "Carole Lombard...Park Bench." To the untrained eye, one well might think that's Lombard sitting on a park bench in wintertime, a building behind her.

Turns out that's not a park bench; it isn't even an exterior shot. It's from Lombard's first all-talkie, Pathe's "High Voltage" (1929). Lombard and several of her fellow cast members are snowbound in the Sierra Nevada mountains, stranded inside an abandoned church after their bus broke down. Here are a few more stills from that production for proof:

The photo at top -- which we profiled a few years back at http://carole-and-co.livejournal.com/507992.html -- is 8.5" x 11" and is said to be in mint condition and "beautiful" -- though it doesn't say whether it's a vintage image. The deadline for bidding is 3:45 p.m. (Eastern) a week from Saturday. Bid, or learn man, by visiting http://www.ebay.com/itm/Carole-Lombard-Park-Bench-/141631544550?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item20f9e5dce6.
