Diana photo at auction in New Hampshire

A photo marked ‘‘not to be published’’ that shows a teenage Diana Spencer (above left) before she became Princess of Wales, with a young friend seated beside her, will be featured in an auction this month in New Hampshire. The photograph might never have been seen publicly until now, RR Auction said. Stamped February 1981 on the back, the photo was taken around the time Charles, the Prince of Wales, and Lady Diana Spencer ended months of speculation and announced they were to be married. The photo came from the Caren Archive, a major private collection of rare newspapers and other publications, and was purchased seven years ago from the Daily Mirror newspaper. In 1981, Diana first told news of her engagement to her friends, then moved out of her apartment Feb. 23 and into Buckingham Palace. What was widely labeled the wedding of the century took place on July 29, 1981, at St. Paul’s Cathedral in London. Their marriage ended in divorce in 1996, and Diana died in a Paris car crash in 1997. Another Diana photo to be included in the auction is an original 1988 news photo of the princess observing a marriage conflict resolution seminar. The auction is scheduled for Jan. 17-24 in Amherst.

Brolin arrested, released

Josh Brolin spent some of New Year’s Day and the following morning in a Southern California jail cell after getting arrested for misdemeanor public intoxication. Santa Monica Police Lieutenant Darrell Lowe says the actor was not given a citation for the Tuesday arrest, which means he likely won’t have to appear in court. Lowe says Brolin was arrested just before midnight Jan. 1, when officers found him heavily intoxicated on a Santa Monica sidewalk. He was booked into jail and released about six hours later. A call to a publicist for Brolin was not immediately returned Sunday. Brolin is starring in the crime film ‘‘Gangster Squad,’’ which opens this week.

NBC comedy for Fox

On his upcoming NBC comedy, Michael J. Fox will play a newscaster who quits his job because of Parkinson’s disease but returns to work in the show’s first episode because a new medical regimen has helped him control many of the disease’s symptoms. NBC said Sunday the comedy closely tracks many aspects of Fox’s personal life and tries to have fun with an image that has left him an object of pity-fueled admiration. The show doesn’t have a title yet. NBC Entertainment president Jennifer Salke said it will premiere in September.
