JOAN CRAWFORD(1908-1977) American actress, an Academy Award winner for her role in Mildred Pierce. T.L.S. "Joan Crawford", 1p., 4to. West Los Angeles, Apr. 12, 1943, in full: "How sweet and thoughtful of you to send me the beautiful card congratulating me on my new little son. We are terribly happy with him and are spending our vacation between pictures getting acquainted with him. He is such a sweet baby..". A year and a half after Crawford's death, Christina Crawford published a bestseller exposéé entitled Mommie Dearest which contained allegations that Crawford was emotionally and physically abusive to her and her brother Christopher. Though many of Crawford's friends, as well as her two other daughters, harshly criticized and disputed the book's claims, others supported the contents and Crawford's reputation was somewhat tarnished. With a vintage 8" x 10", sepia MGM promotional still of Crawford (not signed). Light wrinkles at the top of the letter, otherwise very good. Two items.
Estimate $ 200-300
