Inscribed photograph signed "For my favorite/person, Jimmie/as ever/Joan Crawford". With pencil notations on verso in unknown hand. B/w, 8¾x11¾, printed on cardstock. Photo by Hurrell of MGM, with embossing in lower right corner and credit stamp on verso in purple ink. Typewritten notes affixed to verso: "Her studio home! Joan Crawford, Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer/star enjoys the beauty and comfort of her highly colorful/and artistic three-room studio dressing suite. The/rooms, feature beautiful wall paper, artistic lamps,/and rare objects of art." Crawford (1904-1977, born Lucille Fay LeSueur in San Antonio, Texas) 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 silents to the sound era, although she preferred the silents. 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. Lightly toned and bowed. Edges are lightly chipped. Adhesive remnants from frame at top edge. Otherwise in fine condition.
