With one pawprint, Carole Lombard's beloved Pekingese, Pushface, joined the ranks of canine actors over the winter of 1935-1936. Pushface played a small role on the big screen in Universal's Lombard vehicle, "Love Before Breakfast." (Was its salary dog treats?)
Watching the proceedings are director Walter Lang (whom the following year would marry Carole's close pal Madalynne Field) and supporting players Cesar Romero and Betty Lawford. This is a vintage photo, as the markings on the back verify:
This delightful photo is a rarity; it's 8" x 10" and is said to be in "very good" condition ("there is a small tear at the top edge and some minor wear to the surface"). Bidding on this begins at $15, with the auction closing at 9:04 p.m. (Eastern) next Wednesday.
