Two portraits of Carole Lombard, probably taken to promote her first film at the studio, 1930’s “Safety In Numbers,” are now available via eBay.

First is the above photo, an original vintage picture from the renowned Lester Glassner collection; the seller promises more Lombard originals in the future, in contrast to earlier reissue or re-strike items that were available. This measures 7 1/4″ x 9 1/2″ (no information is on the back), is in very fine condition, and can be bought straight up for $149.95…or you can make an offer. Learn all the details at http://www.ebay.com/itm/CAROLE-LOMBARD-ORIGINAL-ART-DECO-PORTRAIT-PHOTO-LINEN-BACKED-1930s-GLASSNER-/261148672600?_trksid=p2045573.m2042&_trkparms=aid%3D111000%26algo%3DREC.CURRENT%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D27%26meid%3D4526099219667534068%26pid%3D100033%26prg%3D1011%26rk%3D2%26sd%3D121042574621%26.

The other pic is a 1970s reissue from Glassner, also from “Safety In Numbers”:

Note the “1249” code for the movie — as Lombard had not yet been signed to a full Paramount contract, she had not been assigned a “P” (player) number. Carole looks silky and stylish in this 8″ x 10″ single-weight, in very fine condition. This also is a buy-or-make-offer item, though the asking price is only $19.95.
