This rarity from “Big News,” showing Carole Lombard as a cloche-wearing newspaper reporter (de rigueur for 1929), is among four gelatin-silver photos from her pre-Code movies being sold as a single unit on eBay. All are in fine to very fine condition, and have no markings or snipes on the back.

The others are from “Up Pops The Devil” (1931), where Carole sternly stares at Norman Foster (playing her husband) and Lilyan Tashman…
