Joan Crawford - Autograph Poem Signed Circa 1928 For Sale

Joan Crawford - Autograph Poem Signed Circa 1928

THE ACTRESS SENDS A POEM ABOUT BEING "CONDEMNED FOR EVERYTHING I DO" TO A LOYAL FAN AND CORRESPONDENT

JOAN CRAWFORD. Autograph Poem signed: "'Me'", 1p, 8x10. On stationery imprinted "Joan" in silver. In full: "I am condemned for everything I do, Even for each and every little mood. Everything's wrong and nothing is right, However I guess that's all in life. - But there's one little thought that give's (sic) me great peace - In my own mind Im (sic) right at least." Lightly creased with folds, not at signature. Fine condition. Accompanied by original envelope, 8x4. 10-cent Special Delivery and 10-cent Monroe stamps affixed, postmarked Culver City, Calif., February 11, 1928. Addressed by Crawford to: "Mr Dan Mahony., 503 W 150th St., New York City, New York". At lower left margin, Crawford has written: "Special Del/Air Mail". Lightly creased and soiled. Postal stamps touch 2 words of writing. Pencil note (unknown hand) above address. Torn open at upper edge. Additional postmarks, postal stamped notations and pencil notes (unknown hand) on verso, which is soiled, Flap creased at upper portions. In the year she sent this poem, Crawford appeared in eight films: Tide of Empire, West Point, The Law of the Range, Rose-Marie, Across to Singapore, Four Walls, Our Dancing Daughters and Dream of Love. She would also become engaged to actor Douglas Fairbanks, Jr. in October (the two would marry on June 3, 1929 and divorce on May 12, 1933). 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. Crawford, who was glamourous and sometimes over-the-top, was determined to play the substantial roles associated with such actresses as Greta Garbo and Norma Shearer, so she determinedly pursued leads in films such as Paid (1930) and The Women (1939). As her popularity waned somewhat in the late 1930s, Crawford's name appeared on the infamous full-page "Hollywood Reporter" advertisement listing "glamour stars detested by the public". Her reputation as a prima donna was not helped in her later years with M-G-M, when Crawford ultimately refused to work on the poor material given to her by the studio, resulting in a lengthy suspension. Her position as a leading lady was restored in 1945 when Crawford, who had been signed by Warner Bros., made a comeback in the title role in Mildred Pierce. 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. However, Crawford was a faithful correspondent with her large fan base, including Mahony, with whom she corresponded in the 1920s and 1930s. Two items.
