She's been framed!

Does this give Carole Lombard sufficient "street cred"? Actually, I created it using the free app http://www.straightouttasomewhere.com/ (thank you, Dr. Dre, whose Beats firm came up with this), and I like to think that somewhere, Carole's enjoying this tribute to her initial hometown. (If you hear of a lightning bolt striking someone in Los Angeles on this hot, but otherwise sunny day, you'll know I was wrong, in which case it's been nice knowing you.)

Our topic for today actually concerns this:

It's a lovely framed photo of Carole, probably from 1933 or '34, measuring 9" by 10 3/4" and in "a beautiful carved wood frame," as the seller states. I have no idea when this was framed, or whether it's a vintage image or a reprint. I suppose whomever wins this auction could remove the back and find out if they're really that curious:

Bidding begins at $9.99, with the auction closing at 12:45 p.m. (Eastern) Wednesday. To bid or find out more, go to http://www.ebay.com/itm/VTG-CAROLE-LOMBARD-FRAMED-PICTURE-ORIGINAL-OLD-STUDIO-HOLLYWOOD-GLAM-/231653704077?hash=item35efa3018d.

It's on to p1202-714 in our series of Lombard LiveJournal headers, and once again we have a snipe to furnish the details:
