A guy, a gal, a horse

But when the "guy" is Clark Gable and the "gal" Carole Lombard, you know the pic is something special. And it is, an image I've never come across before. Fortunately, there'w a snipe on the back, so we know a bit more about it:

It's an MGM photo (we know it's not from RKO, Carole's home studio in 1939-1940, because the typeface is normal), and notes Gable was among those aiding popular character actor Leo Carrillo (yep, the guy for whom the state park in Malibu is named) at his roundup. (I'm sure Carole, an expert horsewoman, could've helped too, if asked.)

The seller lists it as "between scenes," but it clearly isn't, not in a strict sense -- there was no horse in "No Man of Her Oen," the only movie Clark and Carole made together,

This Gable-Lombard rarity is up for auction at eBay, with an opening bid price of $75; the auction ends at 5:18 p.m. (Eastern) next Sunday. If you'd like to corral this pic and have the dineros to do it, go to http://www.ebay.com/itm/CAROLE-LOMBARD-CLARK-GABLE-Original-CANDID-Between-Scenes-Photo-1930s-/161895353240?hash=item25b1b70b98:g:Pq8AAOSwv-NWUj81.
