New York: Citadel, 1968. First Edition. Boldly signed by Joan Crawford on the title page: “To John from Joan Crawford.” The only book on Joan Crawford’s films published in her lifetime. Oversized format. Illustrated. Fine copy with the most minute trace of shelf wear in a very good plus dust jacket with a hint of dust soiling and marking to the rear panel, a bit of rubbing to the spine folds, and a few tiny chips and small tears. A comprehensive look at the life and career of Hollywood legend, Joan Crawford, illustrated throughout with candid behind-the-scenes photos and stills from her many films, including Grand Hotel, The Women, Above Suspicion, Hollywood Canteen, Mildred Pierce (for which she won an Oscar for Best Actress), Possessed, Sudden Fear, Johnny Guitar, Whatever Happened to Baby Jane?, etc. Miss Crawford epitomized the various stages of Hollywood glamour and style, from the ambitious and gutsy Depression era heroine of the 30s, to the long-suffering yet beautiful survivor of the 40s, to the femme fatale of the 50s, she always seemed to do her best work just as she was on the verge of being written off. With stills from all of her films, cast lists, synopses of the stories, production credits, and reviews. (Inventory #: 20964E)
