A twin bill for a 'Ladies' Man'

Carole Lombard's second film with William Powell, "Ladies' Man," made in the spring of 1931, proved she still had a ways to go as an actress. She tries to keep up with the more experienced Powell and Kay Francis, but can't quite do it. Thankfully, Bill and Kay carry the load, which for Lombard was a genuine learning experience.

Two rare stills promoting this Paramount film now are available via eBay. First of all, here's Carole between Powell and Martin Burton (1904-1976, a Hoosier like Carole who made but five films, between 1931 and '33):

This is an image I've never seen before, so I understand why the seller is asking $79.95 under eBay's "buy it now" policy. (You can also make an offer, if you're interested in buying or merely curious, visit https://www.ebay.com/itm/CAROLE-LOMBARD-ORIGINAL-KEYBOOK-PHOTO-LADIES-MAN-LINEN-BACKED-POWELL-VF-1931/253563998424?hash=item3b099790d8:g:pnMAAOSwhxhadySg to learn more.

Another still promoting that movie shows a very stylish Lombard:

IT's from the same seller as the other picture...although here the "buy it now" price is $109.95 (it's listed in "very fine" condition).
