JOAN CRAWFORD, WALTER BRENNAN and PHILLIP TERRY
All three sign the back of a postcard featuring the famed Hollywood Canteen of World War II, where stars entertained (and served) men and women in uniform. Writing from the Canteen, Crawford has penned a note to a serviceman's mother!
Autograph Note on Picture Postcard signed: "Hello Mom/Jack is at/the Canteen and/thinking of you/Joan Crawford/and" on verso of postcard. B/w, 5x3. Depicts military personnel lining up in front of the Hollywood Canteen. Captioned: "Sunday Afternoon at the Hollywood Canteen". Also signed: "Phillip Terry" under Crawford's signature and "Walter Brennan" on address portion. At left margin, ink note (unknown hand, but possibly Crawford's mother): "Anna LeSeur Mother/of/Joan Crawford". Actress JOAN CRAWFORD (1908-1977) was born Lucille LeSeur, but was forced to change her name by M-G-M studio head Louis B. Meyer, who thought her real name sounded too much like "sewer". Originally a professional dancer, Crawford 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. PHILLIP TERRY (born Frederick Korman in 1907), made his film debut in 1937, the year he appeared in Mannequin, starring Joan Crawford, whom he would marry in 1942 (Terry, the third of the actress' five husbands, and Crawford divorced in 1946; after the divorce was final, Crawford changed the name of the son they had adopted from Phillip Terry, Jr. to Christopher Crawford). In 1941, Terry received good notices for The Parson of Panamint, and he would again receive acclaim for his role as Wick Birman, the straight-laced brother of alcoholic Ray Milland, in The Lost Weekend (1945, the year before he and Crawford were amicably divorced). His film credits also include Boys Town (1938), The Young Dr. Kildare (1938), Calling Dr. Kildare (1939), Wake Island (1942), Bataan (1943) and The Navy vs. the Night Monsters (1966, his last film). In 1936, WALTER BRENNAN (1894-1974) won the first of his three Best Supporting Actor Academy Awards for his role as Swan Bostrom in Come and Get It, set in the Wisconsin woodlands. In 1938, he won the Best Supporting Actor Oscar for his role as septuagenarian horse breeder Peter Goodwin in Kentucky and won again in 1940 for The Westerner, playing legendary Judge Roy Bean. Brennan was also nominated for the award in 1941 for Sergeant York. From 1957-1963, he was Grandpa Amos McCoy in TV's The Real McCoys. Brennan also portrayed a former cavalry scout raising his grandson in The Guns of Will Sonnett (ABC, 1967-1969. Lightly creased, with mid-vertical fold. Lightly soiled and stained. "Crawford" of writing at margin touches the "p" in Phillip. Overall, fine condition.
