Short letter to a fan requesting photos
Typed Letter signed: "Joan", 1 page, 6¼x7. No place, 1966 October 20. On personal letterhead to "Dear Ida", in full: "Thank you for your nice letter. I will send 8x10 inch photos to Kate Coon and Sue Sinay, and I hope they will like them. [Items not included.] Incidentally, is Kate's street address 4100 Wetzl Road? If they don't receive the photos, please let me know. Best wishes to you, and I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving". Joan 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. Toned and creased. Mailing folds. Corners and edges lightly worn. Otherwise, fine condition.
