Joan Crawford sends a typed letter of thanks for the article on an interview she gave.
Typed Letter Signed: "Joan Crawford", 1p, 5¼x6¾. No place, 1969 November 3. On stationery imprinted with her name to Philip O'Brien. In full: "Thank you very much for your note and for sending me the Roderick Mann interview which was published in the 'Boston Herald'. I spent three months in England this summer, filming a science fiction picture, called 'Trog', which will be released in the spring of 1970. My visit to Boston was a real 'quickie'. I was there for the showing of an industrial film I did for the Food Chains (the first I've ever done) and then left for Miami for the North American Van Lines convention. Bless you and all good wishes to you." Matted to 16x12 with photograph, b/w, 7¼x9½. Minor surface crease (barely visible) on clothing. Crawford starred as Dr. Brockton in Trog, which, as mentioned in this letter, was released in 1970. In 1969, she hosted the TV show, Journey to the Unknown, and appeared on an episode of Night Gallery. Joan Crawford (1904-1977) 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 silent movie to the sound era, although she preferred the silent movies. 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 with fold, light vertical fold at the "Jo" of Joan. Pinhead-size spot at lower left corner. Fine condition. Matted, not in Gallery of History style.Not reviewed by us for conservation integrity. "As is" matting purchase.
