Getting in some 'Sun'

As its title suggests, "Sinners In The Sun" provided Carole Lombard the opportunity to show off her form in a swimsuit. But her character, a model, has a fashion angle as well. A still from the 1932 film I'd never seen until yesterday makes it evident.

Lombard is in a dress factory, where she's being pursued by Walter Byron while work goes on in the background. We know it's from "Sinners In The Sun" because the title is handwritten on the back.

The single-weight, linen-backed photo measures 7.75" x 9.875" and is in fine/very fine condition. According to the seller, it has a very small crease in one corner and some very light silvering -- minor issues for a pic that's 86 years old.

Bidding on this vintage original opens at $49.95, with the auction closing at 8:33 p.m. (Eastern) a week from Sunday (Aug. 5). Interested in bidding?
