That look on Carole Lombard’s face as her character prepares to take part in a seance perfectly conveys her feelings about “Supernatural,” a Paramount programmer released in the spring of 1933 — it’s so much horror hokum, and she knows it. Nevertheless, Lombard gives it her all despite her disdain for the genre, and there are many admirers of the film.

For those people, who might also collect “Supernatural” memorabilia, this item:

If Carole saw this photograph of the 27″ x 41″ one-sheet, I sense she might give the dog some advice as to what to do to, er, with it. Thankfully, the canine exercised better judgment, because this is a genuine rarity. This hand-painted lobby display has three 8″ x 10″ photos tipped in:

Note that while this is shown framed, it will be sent unframed since it’s currently under heavy glass.

Bidding begins at $349, with the auction closing at 4:59 p.m. (Eastern) next Saturday.
