Autograph letter signed: "Joan", 3p (front and verso attached), 12x8 when open card. Accompanied by original mailing envelope. Fairford, Santa Monica, California, no date (but written at upper right in unknown hand Sept. 1928). In full: "Dear Dan Must write a note to see how you are feeling. I I do hope you are better and all well again. You have not written to me far ages. See I do hope it isn't because you've been too ill. Do take care of your self [sic] dear. No foolin [sic] Im [sic] quite worried about you. Dodo and I have had dreadful colds. Just getting rid of them. Will probably catch it all over again for I am going in swimming in 45 minutes I would eat lunch and then have to wait for an hour. Dado and [illegible] Douglas are taking a sun bath together. I bet you would kill me for talking about swim baths and swimming and such. How is the weather in New York? Please take care of yourself dear and write soon-". Joan Crawford (1904-1977) shot to stardom on the strength of 1928's Our Dancing Daughters, starring as Diana "Di" Medford, a role originally intended for Clara Bow. The film was hugely successful, and MGM soon doubled her salary and began featuring her name on marquees. Unlike so many stars of the period, Crawford successfully made the transformation from the silent movies to the sound era, although she preferred the silent movies. Crawford, originally a professional dancer, had made her film debut in 1925. She won a Best Actress Academy Award for Mildred Pierce (1945) and was nominated for Best Actress Oscars for Possessed (1947) and Sudden Fear (1952). A tell-all memoir, Mommie Dearest (1978, later made into a feature film), by her daughter Christina, portrayed Crawford as unfeeling and ruthlessly ambitious. However, Crawford was a faithful correspondent with her large fan base. Fold crease through "J" of Joan. Light surface creases. Corners lightly worn and creased. Otherwise, fine condition.
