Carole goes 'high-hat,' and you can win a book



What's gotten in to Carole Lombard? Generally the unassuming sort, she here looks to be enjoying a night at the opera channeling her inner Margaret Dumont. (Carole and first husband William Powell enjoyed opera at least once, although this 1933 pic of them with Gloria Swanson and husband Michael Farmer was taken several weeks after their divorce.)



But seriously, the photo ot Lombard plus binoculars, shown in the Spanish-language Cine Mundial magazine in 1932, was apparently made for humorous effect. Which it achieves beautifully.



Earlier this week, we posted an entry about a book to be issued in 2019 about Oscar-winning screenwriter (and Lombard love interest) Robert Riskin and famed actress Fay Wray, written by their daughter, Victoria Riskin (https://carole-and-co.livejournal.com/959706.html). As it turns out, you can win a copy of the book.

Good luck...even though I'm also entered.
