Academy Award-winning actress Joan Crawford signed this document in 1950 to modify the dates of a 1947 contract that she had signed with Warner Brothers.
Document signed: "Joan Crawford" and an assistant secretary of Warner Brothers Pictures, Inc. 2 pages, 8½x11. Feb. 9, 1950. Addressed to Miss Joan Crawford, c/o MCA Artists, Ltd., Beverly Hills, California. Crawford signs a letter of agreement modifying the dates of her contract with Warner Brothers. 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 creased. Staple holes at top. Otherwise, fine condition.
