carole lombard p1202-858f

Well, here’s your chance. An original negative of the Carole Lombard portrait above, Paramount p1202-858 from sometime in 1934, is up for auction at eBay. The 8″ x 10″ comes out as a black-and-white image, not the sepia shade as seen here.

According to the seller, “This is the original negative, not a copy, and has the photographer’s retouching on the reverse side. Numbering along the bottom is in raised ink. There is some handling wear. Overall it is in near mint condition.”

This negative would be an impressive catch for any Lombard fan who can produce photos from it — but, to no one’s surprise, it will be an expensive catch, too. Bidding begins at $399.99, with the auction closing at 7:16 p.m. (Eastern) Sunday.

If you’re a serious Carole collector who loves her series of Paramount portraits, this may be for you. To bid or for additional information, visit
