carole lombard 1933 rotogravure large

It’s three Carole Lombard photos in one as part of this rotogravure montage from 1933. (Actually, the term “rotogravure” is usually synonymous with newspapers; this sepia image measures 8.25″ x 11.25″, and I’m going to guess this came from a magazine.)

The dominant photo was taken by Eugene Robert Richee, while the second pic shows off Carole’s sexiness and the third salutes the work of plastic surgeons to repair Lombard following her 1926 automobile accident. And Carole would indeed work with George Raft in 1934 — but in “Bolero,” not “All Of Me.”
