carole lombard p1202-583b

Above is Carole Lombard’s Paramount portrait p1202-583…pretty striking, don’cha think? It’s among a variety of Lombard pics I recently found at an eBay seller’s site. At last check, 144 photos of her were there — on sale, not auction — for either $14.99 or $15; while all are reprints, they are said to be struck from the original negatives.

What makes this a treasure trove for any Carole collector is the sheer variety being offered. A cursory check revealed at least 20 Lombard p1202 images not currently in my online collection…and I’ve accumulated these pics for several years now. (The collection also includes portraits made for other studios and movie stills that wouldn’t be in the p1202 category.) It’s really extraordinary, so I thought I’d show you the 20 in groups of five every day, in numerical order.

Since they are reprints, we don’t know which photographer took them or what they were serving to illustrate. But they’re Lombard, so they’re lovely — and for now, that’s enough.

If you’re interested in buying p1202-583, then go to http://www.ebay.com/itm/Carole-Lombard-8×10-Photo-G1812-/370926529353?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item565cf1ab49 to find out more.

Our second photo is p1202-592:

Next up is p1202-593, where Carole clasps her arms together and looks unusually stern (could this shoot have been made to promote “Supernatural”?):

We then move on to Lombard in a largely white background from late 1933, about the time she was cast in “Bolero” — p1202-623:

To buy it, visit http://www.ebay.com/itm/Carole-Lombard-8×10-Photo-G1829-/380752795557?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item58a6a297a5.

And finally for today, a relative rarity among p1202 images — one whose number has an “A” tacked onto it for some reason. Again, I don’t know the context, nor do I have the other version (p1202-630). However, I now have p1202-630A, and since it’s shot from the back, I’m guessing its sibling pic shows Carole’s gown from the front:

It can be yours by going to http://www.ebay.com/itm/Carole-Lombard-8×10-Photo-G1828-/370926546753?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item565cf1ef41.

We’ll have three more groups of five through Tuesday. To see all the seller’s Lombard pics, head to http://www.ebay.com/sch/m.html?_odkw=&item=370926526766&_osacat=0&_ssn=movie-material-store&_trksid=p2046732.m570.l1313.TR8.TRC2.A0.Xcarole+lombard&_nkw=carole+lombard&_sacat=0&_from=R40.

Now time for our initial update from “The Great Silent Recasting,” scheduled to last through Monday:

The site “A Mythical Monkey Writes About The Movies” is going into this whole hog (pardon the mixed animal reference) by planning four “pre-makes” (its term) in as many days. It starts out with a ’20s version of “Freaky Friday,” where Mary Pickford switches bodies with…Mary Pickford:

(Merely describing your fictional film is fine, too — posters are nice, but not a prerequisite.)

We’ll have more updates in ensuing days.
