“What is he writing about?” you may think to yourself. “Carole Lombard looks in pretty good temperament there.” In terms of mood, you’re certainly correct…but focus on that word “fit.” There’s the (figurative) rub, as the snipe on the back makes evident:

And if you’re wondering who took this portrait, we can answer that question too:

This Otto Dyar photo from 1932 is, according to the seller, “approximately 8 1/8″ by 10 1/8″. Has a 3/4″ tear bottom left hand corner, creased bottom right hand corner, a raised/creased area left hand side & a little bit of wear to the corners. Shows signs of age/wear/handling.”

You can purchase this straight up for $195, or you can make a bid, beginning at $149.99; the auction closes at 5:51 p.m. (Eastern) on Wednesday. To bid or learn more, visit×10-Photo-No-Man-of-Her-Own-Paramount-/191429977009?pt=Art_Photo_Images&hash=item2c921da3b1.
