That’s the finished on-screen product from 1935’s “Hands Across The Table,” where Carole Lombard portrays a money-minded manicurist. But shift the angle slightly, showing what’s going on between takes, and you get a significantly different impression, as Lombard talks things over with director Mitchell Leisen while perusing the script:

This is proven by the snipe on the back:

This original Paramount publicity shot measures 8″ x 10″; it’s in good condition, although “there are some minor creases in the photo.” Bidding begins at $9.99, with the auction ending at 9:08 p.m. (Eastern) Wednesday.
