The Academy Award-winning actress known for her role in the Maltese Falcon signs this letter to Gloria Safier updating her on Thanksgiving and asking for an address
Autograph letter signed: "Love,/Mary" in blue ink. 6¼x7. Laguna Hills, California, Friday, no date. Written on personal letterhead to "Gloria" in full: "Big Thanksgiving day- I'm miserable- why does everybody think it's over-eating day! I need Perez's address- Pete is doing the first interview- as a feeler- if she's a complete kook- no dice. Hope you had a nice day- and now here comes Christmas again, already!" Unsigned, typed letter from Gloria Safier also included. Mary Astor (1906-1987) had a successful silent screen career, costarring with John Barrymore in Beau Brummell (1923) and Don Juan (1926). Her career was threatened by tabloid scandals in the 1930s, including a very contentious divorce, but she moved on to even greater film success in the talking era. She won the 1941 Academy Award for Best Supporting Actress for portraying chain-smoking concert pianist Sandra Kovak in Warner Bros.' The Great Lie, which starred Bette Davis. That same year, she costarred with Humphrey Bogart in The Maltese Falcon. Astor wrote five novels; her autobiography and subsequent film memoir were both best sellers. Toned. Horizontal crease across center. Corners rounded. Upper left corner creased. Holes from staple removal and paperclip indent near top edge. Pencil notes (unknown hand) on bottom edge. Otherwise, fine condition.
