'Orchids' to this rarity

While few would call 1932's "No More Orchids" a classic, one could claim it's the third-best of Carole Lombard's five films for Columbia, trailing "Twentieth Century" (of course) and probably "Virtue." Lombard gives a solid performance, with hints of the comedic dynamo she'd become later that decade; Lyle Talbot makes for a creditable leading man; and stellar character actor Walter Connolly holds it all together as the father who stands up to crusty grandpa C. Aubrey Smith.

A publicity still from the film I've never seen before has found its way to eBay:

It shows several cast members on a boat railing, including Talbot and Louise Closser Hale, with Carole's wealthy character Anne Holt on the stairwell:

Is she returning from shore or departing? I'm not quite certain.

This original 8" x 10 1/8" single-weight identifies the film on the back:

It's listed in fine condition, "flat, bright, clean and glossy" with no folds.

Want it? You can buy it straight up for $79.99, or you can make an offer. Find out more by visiting https://www.ebay.com/itm/CAROLE-LOMBARD-ORIGINAL-COLUMBIA-PHOTO-NO-MORE-ORCHIDS-PRE-CODE-CLOSSER-1932/254023949929?hash=item3b2501de69.
