Academy Award-winning actress Joan Crawford signed this document in 1949 to amend a 1947 employment contract that she had with Warner Brothers.
Document signed "Joan Crawford" in blue ink and by an assistant treasurer at Warner Brothers Pictures, Inc. in black ink. 1 page, 8½x10¾. Jan. 31, 1949. Addressed to Miss Joan Crawford, c/o MCA Artists, Ltd., Beverly Hills, California. Crawford signed this document to amend her May 20, 1947 contract with Warner Brothers. Crawford made two movies during this contract period before signing this amendment: Daisy Kenyon and Possessed (both 1947). She received an Academy Award nod for her performance as schizophrenic Louise Howell Graham in Possessed. 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, foxed and creased. Folded twice and unfolded. Otherwise in fine condition.
