Like his Paramount cohort Eugene Robert Richee, Otto Dyar helped define Carole Lombard’s look in the early 1930s — at times sultry, sexy, glamorous and elegant (sometimes all of them simultaneously). The following portrait is a splendid example of Dyar’s handiwork:

Carole applies a sly, welcoming smile, a shapely leg and a seductive pose — resist her power at your own peril. That image is from an original photo, as proven by the studio stamp on the back:

While there is no p1202 code number shown, it looks to be from the same 1931 session that produced p1202-148:

Save for some light wear on the corners, this 8″ x 10″ photo appears in excellent shape. It’s being auctioned at eBay, with a minimum bid of $50; bids close at 10:47 p.m. (Eastern) Wednesday. Bid or find out more at
