As part of my Carole Lombard research for this blog, I peruse plenty of portraits of the lady, some of which I think I’ve seen before (but, since there’s no Paramount p1202 or other studio tag, I can’t completely confirm that I have). However, I’m nearly 100 percent certain I’ve never seen the pic above before, because I would’ve remembered it — arms folded, glamorous, as if she were auditioning for a mid-thirties version of “I Dream of Jeannie.” (I would bet Barbara Eden, a terrific comedic actress beyond that one iconic role, was a Lombard fan in her youth.)

It’s one of three portraits of Carole that caught my eye today; here are the two others. First, this pic from 1938:

Then, this sepia-toned image:
