This image of Carole Lombard and Pat O’Brien, from the 1932 film “Virtue” (Lombard’s first loan-out from Paramount, and a movie whose reputation has risen in recent years) now is available via eBay. It’s a scene where Carole’s character, former streetwalker Mae, starts wooing O’Brien’s cab driver Jimmy Doyle (who isn’t aware of her past) after taking a job as a waitress.
This is an original photo, in good condition, and one I’ve never seen before. It’s in good condition, according to the seller, who adds “there is a chip out of the left hand margin and a pinhole in the top margin.” (As I normally do with these pictures, I’ve trimmed the borders for display.)
Bidding begins at $8, with the auction ending at 5:39 p.m. (Eastern) Monday. To bid or find out more, visit http://www.ebay.com/itm/ORIGINAL-STILL-1932-VIRTUE-CAROLE-LOMBARD-PAT-OBRIEN-/321783788408?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item4aebcef378.
