Crawford, Joan (1908-1973). TYPED LETTER, SIGNED. [426 North Bristol Avenue, West Los Angeles, November 13th, 1938) 1pp, small 4to. The Oscar-winning actress writes an early letter with loads of detail her friend "LIL" (unidentified, but we have two letters between the friends spanning 15 years, so it was a long relationship). The letter discusses her recent film "The Shining Hour" (1938, directed by Frank Borzage) in which she played a fast and loose nightclub singer. "We have finished THE SHINING HOUR and I think it should be released in another month. Let me know your opinion of it when you see it." Then Joan Crawford writes about her current project ICE FOLLIES OF 1939 in which she plays an ice skater: " Now I am working on ICE FOLLIES, skating every day on a rink built on one of the sound stages at the studio. I am going to sing in this one, too. James Stewart and Lew Ayres play opposite. My best always, As ever.and then boldly signed in black ink, "Joan Crawford". In very good condition, folded twice, with exceptionally good Hollywood content! The letter came with an original photo which was apparently given to the recipient but we can't be sure which film it's from (although check out that jaunty feather!). Bookseller Inventory # 001843
