A typed letter dated October 6th 1953, on her personal headed paper, by Oscar-winning actress Joan Crawford (1905-1977). She thanks her correspondent for her note, and remarks that she is looking forward to making more TV films in 1954; signed at the close with a biro. Comes with the original mailing envelope, postmarked Beverly Hills. Crawford started out as a dancer in traveling theatrical companies before signing a motion picture contract with Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer in 1925. Initially frustrated by the size and quality of her parts, Crawford began a campaign of self-publicity and became nationally known as a flapper by the end of the 1920s. In the 1930s, Crawford's fame rivaled, and later outlasted, MGM colleagues Norma Shearer and Greta Garbo. Often playing hardworking young women who find romance and success, these "rags-to-riches" stories were well received by Depression-era audiences and were popular with women. Crawford became one of Hollywood's most prominent movie stars and one of the highest paid women in the United States, and in 1945 starred in Mildred Pierce, for which she won the Academy Award for Best Actress. Joan Crawford was voted the tenth greatest female star in the history of American cinema by the American Film Institute.
This would make a great display piece, mounted with a portrait of her from our 'Unsigned Portraits' section.
