Two Carole Lombard Paramount photos — one a p1202 portrait, the other to promote her first lead vehicle at the studio (or should that be “leaden” vehicle?) — are currently available via eBay.

First up is p1202-1045, from 1934…Carole, casually chic. This is an original 8″ x 10″, and one bid has already been made for $9.99. Bidding continues through 5:25 a.m. (Eastern) next Monday. If you want to get in on the action for this relatively rare pic, visit

The Glassner collection of vintage photos has again returned to eBay; most of their Lombard pics were ones that no purchased the first time around, and among them was one I somehow neglected to post when it first circulated in July. It’s Carole, Paul Lukas and Ricardo Cortez in a scene from the lackluster 1932 programmer “No One Man”:

As is the case with most of the Glassner pics, it’s not an original, having been printed in the 1970s or ’80s — but it’s available if it strikes your fancy, with bids beginning at $14.95; bidding closes at 5:17 p.m. (Eastern) Thursday. Find out more at All the Lombard items available (43 at last count) can be found at

With Hurricane Sandy affecting the lives of so many here, I heard this song on the radio last night, and it seems appropriate for today — the Boswell Sisters, the greatest of jazz vocal groups, doing “River, Stay Away From My Door.” Recorded in November 1931, the Bozzies are backed by four of that era’s greats…Jimmy Dorsey on clarinet, Tommy Dorsey on trombone, Eddie Lang on guitar and Joe Venuti on violin. Whether your “river” be a stream or an ocean, please put safety first and foremost in these upcoming days.
