As I've often noted, "Vigil in the Night" isn't the easiest of Carole Lombard's films to watch, particularly for those of us who adore Carole as a comedic icon. At the same time, it's well crafted (as you would expect from a movie directed by George Stevens), and Lombard gives a performance that shows her intensity, intelligence and seriousness.
Now a document relating to the film has surfaced on eBay. It's dated June 6, 1939, amending a contract she had previously signed with RKO.
As you can see, it's a framed two-page contract complemented with a pair of photos. Here are the pages individually, including Lombard's signature; unfortunately, I can't rotate these images on my computer. Perhaps you can on yours.
The framed item measures 24" x 18 1/4".
As one would expect, this won't come cheaply. The price under the "buy it now" option is $1,175; payment plans include $49 for 24 months. You can also make an offer.

It's a fascinating souvenir from one of Lombard's often overlooked films.
