Signed b/w magazine photo of Joan Crawford in a satin dress, mounted to a green album leaf
Photograph signed "Joan Crawford". B/w, 3¾x4¾ photograph with beveled edges mounted to a 5x6 album leaf with rounded bottom corners. 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 rippled. Signature has low contrast. Album leaf is lightly foxed and was neatly torn from album at top edge. Otherwise in fine condition.
