The younger brother of Dana Andrews, American actor Steve Forrest (1924-2013), is probably best known as Lt. Dan "Hondo" Harrison on the TV series S. W. A. T. (1975-1976). (He also had a bit role in the 2003 film adaptation) Forrest spent much of his career playing heavies (The Bad and the Beautiful, 1952) and rugged, manly roles (the 1977 TV movie Last of the Mohicans). He's skewered both types of roles quite expertly, too, the former with a credible imitation of Dr. Strangelove's General Jack Ripper in Spies Like Us (1985), and the latter as a clean-cut and somewhat naïve rocket captain in the comedy anthology Amazon Women on the Moon (1987). 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 movies 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. In spite of her melodramatic image, Crawford frequently wrote notes of congratulations and condolences, to fellow actors and acquaintances. Pencil notes in bottom left corner and on verso, both in unknown hand. Lightly toned. Show-through from verso touches signature. Otherwise in fine condition.
