Pleads for a letter in reply
Autograph Note, unsigned, 1p, 8½x11. Culver City, California, no date (but pencil note in unknown hand at top right says "April 1928"). On letterhead of M-G-M Studios to "Dan my Sweet". (probably to Dan Mahoney, a fan with whom she corresponded often in the late 1920s). In full: "Now honest darling I wrote you two letters and no answer to either of them. Haven't I been a good person? Don't I deserve a couple of lines of poetry or a mere hello or something from you? Please,". Crawford (1908-1977), originally a professional dancer, made her film debut in 1925. She won a Best Actress Oscar for Mildred Pierce (1945) and was nominated for two more (Possessed, 1947; 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. Lightly creased. Horizontal and vertical folds. Otherwise, fine condition.
