However, Carole Lombard isn’t eating it — she’s wearing it! Confused? Perhaps this snipe can clear things up:

It’s the outfit –– salmon-colored (something we can’t immediately visualize from a black-and-white image), created by Travis Banton for Carole’s starring role in “Love Before Breakfast,” a Universal release the studio is publicizing through this original photo. And here it is, in its glossy 7 3/8″ x 9 1/2″ entirety (it shows some signs of age, wear and handling and is unevenly trimmed):

Want it? You have two ways to do it:

* Purchase it straight up for $130; or

* Make a bid, beginning at $99, in which case the auction will close at 9:27 p.m. (Eastern) on Tuesday.

Either way, go to http://www.ebay.com/itm/Original-1936-CAROLE-LOMBARD-Love-Before-Breakfast-7×9-Photo-/191412725126?pt=Art_Photo_Images&hash=item2c91166586. (By the way, the seller’s tag is “the’orchid’lady,” which as many of us know was one of Paramount’s tags for Carole in her early years. A fan, perhaps?)
