From Dyar, then Glassner, a long line of Lombard

Nearly 5 1/2 years ago we ran that early Carole Lombard Paramount photo, p1202-25, as an example of the vast collection (more than 250,000 stills) of memorabilia expert extraordinaire Lester Glassner, who died in 2009 (https://carole-and-co.livejournal.com/529026.html).

Now, I've come across another Carole Paramount pic from Glassner, not a p1202 but lovely nonetheless. It was taken by Otto Dyar, who snapped an array of alluring Lombard images during the early '30s, and what I like about this is how he got Carole to pose in a straight, yet angular line. It looks dramatic:

There's not much info on the back, aside from a stamp marked "January 1933" at the Photoplay magazine library.

(That's evidently a reference to when it was received, since a check of Photoplay's January 1933 issue through the Media History Digital Library failed to uncover the picture.)

This stunning shot can be yours, if you decide to enter an online auction and win it. Bidding begins at $39.95, and bids close at 10:08 p.m. (Eastern) Wednesday.

And somewhere, Mr. Glassner will thank you (http://beta.latimes.com/local/obituaries/la-me-lester-glassner30-2009aug30-story.html).
