carole lombard we're not dressing 19a

Yep, this ain’t no kitschy ’60s TV show, just a kitschy ’30s musical comedy. Specifically, it’s Carole Lombard and Bing Crosby heading an offbeat cast in 1934’s “We’re Not Dressing,” a loose (very loose!) adaptation of the venerable tale “The Admirable Crichton.” The shipwrecked sextet — from left, Leon Errol, Ethel Merman, Crosby, Ray Milland, Lombard and Jay Henry — mull their fate on this deserted island…little knowing that they’d soon meet scientists (of a sort) George Burns and Gracie Allen, researching the local flora and fauna, or that sailor Bing would round his wealthy, dissolute companions into shape (especially haughty heiress Carole).

This vintage photo, one that’s new to me, is up for auction at eBay. It’s 8″ x 10″, in good condition (there are some pinholes and creases at the corners and some minor wear to the surface). Bids start at $9.99, and bidding closes at 9:09 p.m. (Eastern) next Wednesday.

Interested in this apparently rare item from this goofy pre-Code musical, the only on-screen teaming of Lombard and Crosby? Then go tohttp://www.ebay.com/itm/Carole-Lombard-Bing-Crosby-and-Leon-Errol-original-photo-1934-Were-Not-Dressing-/231021727264?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item35c9f7ce20.
