CAROLE LOMBARD WEARING MINK (1936) Portrait for Paramount


[Los Angeles]: Paramount Pictures, 1936. Vintage original 8 x 10″ (20 x 25 cm.) black-and-white glossy silver gelatin photo. Paramount Pictures info printed and dated 1936 on bottom margin, Kenneth Anger collection label on verso. Creases at top right edge and along right white margin, corner creases, wear and crop marks at top margin for possible publication use. Very good.

Wearing what is likely a mink, Carole Lombard displays the sumptuous coat in a sophisticated manner in this studio publicity still for Paramount. In 1936 Lombard appeared in the films Love Before Breakfast and The Princess Comes Across for Paramount. Lombard wore this costume in the comedy The Princess Comes Across, which was designed for her by Travis Banton.

Filmmaker, artist and Hollywood Babylon author Kenneth Anger collected original photography for his various books and projects.
