A 'new' nautical Carole, on sail

In 1933, Carole Lombard took part in an oceanside Paramount photo session where, on board a yacht, she adopted a nautical look. Sometimes she wore full sailor attire, including bell-bottoms...

...while other session pics had her in an abbreviated version of the outfit, the better to show off those stunning Lombard legs. One shot even featured a "guest star," studio stablemate Gary Cooper:

Now, another on-board photo of Carole has surfaced (pun intentional), this a solo shot in full sailor attire.

There's no p1202 coding, alas. Here's what the back looks like:

It reads:

SAILOR GIRL -- Carole Lombard, Paramount player, becomes nautical and, in a striking sea-faring costume, goes for a yacht trip on the Pacific, which is only a hop, skip and a jump from Hollywood.

Sign me up, captain!

This pose, one I'd never seen before, is available via eBay. It's a vintage 8" x 10", with some minor creasing and slight discoloration on the back.

One bid has been placed, at $4.99, and the auction closes at 8:51 p.m. (Eastern) Monday. To get involved or find out more, visit https://www.ebay.com/itm/CAROLE-LOMBARD-Vintage-8x10-CANDID-SAILOR-GIRL-TRIP-ON-YACHT-IN-PACIFIC-SQUIB/192639601678?hash=item2cda370c0e:g:eToAAOSwL1hbhJvc.

Aye aye.
