“The Princess Comes Across” is a Carole Lombard film that tends to get lost in the shuffle (she’s shown with Fred MacMurray above in a promotional still). It’s certainly a competent movie, with some funny bits to complement a maritime murder plot, but it never quite equals the sum of its parts.

Now, another still from the film has popped up, showing Lombard with veteran character actress Alison Skipworth, who plays her mother. (Carole is passing herself off as a “princess” from Sweden seeking a career in the movies; she’s actually Brooklyn chorus girl Wanda Nash.)

It’s an original 8″ x 10″ with a little wear and tear, as you can see. There also are some old tape remnants on the back.

The opening bid is $10.95, and the auction closes at 11:35 a.m. (Eastern) Tuesday. To bid or learn more, visit
