A farmer and his wife in the Valley

It's mid-1939, and for Carole Lombard and Clark Gable, life is good.

Why shouldn't it be? He's Hollywood's number-one box office attraction, with an Academy Award on his resume and the lead in an iconic film set for release in December. She's among the industry's best-loved personalities and a talented actress in her own right.

And in late March, they finally tied the knot in Arizona while the rest of Hollywood was diverted by the San Francisco premiere of "The Story Of Alexander Graham Bell."

The photo above is now available at eBay. It's vintage and issued by MGM -- we know of that because Gable is cited as a Metro-Goldwyn Mayer star right off the bat on the snipe:

Other info: It's 8" x 10", in very good condition, with a minor crease at the top right corner.

Bidding currently is at $15; with one bid having been placed. Bids close at 9:07 p.m. (Eastern) Sunday. To bid or learn more, go to https://www.ebay.com/itm/Carole-Lombard-with-Clark-Gable-original-candid-portrait-photo-1939-MGM/382487366799?hash=item590e060c8f:g:dcsAAOSwwwRbHcs3.
