JOAN CRAWFORD
Academy Award-winning actress Joan Crawford signed this typed letter on her personalized stationery with her French poodle's name "Ma Petite" in 1964, telling the recipient a fan "My human mother sends her love, and so do all of us." With original mailing envelope.
Typed letter signed "'Ma Petite'" in blue ink. 1 page, 6x6¾, on Crawford's personalized stationery. Oct. 6, 1964. In full: "My dear Uncle Don, Thank you so much for sending me the picture of my new love. I'm so deeply grateful to you. It was love at first sight. I miss very much your loving care each day. It has been a lot of fun here running up and down stairs and out on the terrace, except it has been raining, and my mother and daddy and I do not like to get our feet wet. Thank you again for thinking of me. My human mother sends her love, and so do all of us." Autograph postscript: "P.S. Are you coming to take me to the 'Worlds [sic] Fair'?". Lightly toned and creased. Folded once and unfolded. Otherwise in fine condition. Accompanied by: Original mailing envelope from Crawford's personalized stationery. Pencil notations in top left corner. Postmarked New York City, Oct. 9, 1964. Addressed to Don Parker, Los Angeles, California. Lightly toned and creased. Neatly cut open at top edge. Otherwise in fine condition. Ma Petite was one of two French poodles that Crawford owned in the 1960s. 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.
