Joan Crawford sends a typed letter of thanks for the comments.
Typed Letter Signed: "Joan Crawford", ¾p, 6¼x10. West Los Angeles, California, 1942 September 16. On her personal letterhead to Sarah, Washington, D.C. In full: "How wonderful that you are in the Capitol City and working for the government. I know you must enjoy your work immensely. Your comments about THEY ALL KISSED THE BRIDE made me very happy. I am glad you enjoyed the picture so much. REUNION is completed and should be released shortly. I start work on a film called WOMEN IN UNIFORM within the next few days. Thank you for your good wishes on my marriage. We are very happy. With best wishes, Gratefully". Actress Joan Crawford (1908-1977) starred as Margaret J. Drew in They All Kissed the Bride and as Michele de la Becque (opposite John Wayne) in Reunion in France, both released in 1942. We could find no reference to Women in Uniform. Crawford's next film was Above Suspicion (1943) and then she was released from her MGM contract, so Women in Uniform may have been an MGM film that she was scheduled to do for MGM but never did. She then appeared in Hollywood Canteen (1944) before making Mildred Pierce (1945) for Warner Brothers. The marriage Crawford mentions was to her fourth husband, actor Phillip Terry (1909-1993). The couple, wed in 1942, were divorced in 1946. Crawford had previously been married to James Welton (1923-1924) and actors Douglas Fairbanks, Jr. (1929-1933) and Franchot Tone (1935-1939). All three marriages ended in divorce. Originally a professional dancer, Crawford made her film debut in 1925. She won the Best Actress Academy Award for Mildred Pierce 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. Lightly creased with folds, not at signature. Staple holes at upper left blank corner. Overall, fine condition.
