'Modern' -- and wrinkled

Carole Lombard worked with Paul Lukas in "No One Man," released in early 1932. More than three years later, they reunited -- not for a movie, but for tennis with noted character actor Eric Blore at the Racquet Club in Palm Springs, a photo used in 1935 for Dell Publishing's Modern magazine:

It belonged to Susan Marie Rice, a longtime Lombard collector whom we lost some years ago (though I thankfully got to meet her in 1989 on my first trip to southern California). It's not a very large photo, a mere 4" x 5", and as the seller admits, it's rather wrinkled. For proof:

Rarity, not quality, explains why its eBay price is a "buy it now" $39.99.

And here's a better version of the trio in a slightly different pose:

Hi Vincent! Is there any way I could contact you?

I run an Instagram/Tumblr for Carole and spend a lot of time researching her (too much, actually); we have spoken once before but I changed my name so I don't know if you'd remember, I sent you the photograph of Carole wearing a Sally Eilers jumper!!

Hope you get back, and sorry this is a little off topic!
