Cat. #00112141: LAURA HOPE CREWS

Sorry, this item has already been sold.

Highly scarce and uncommonly early vintage fountain pen signature on a gently folded 4x6-inch tan envelope, dating to her stage days, circa 1910-1915.  In good condition and suitable for matting.  On stage from age four, electrifying Laura Hope Crews blossomed into a lovely leading lady and entered films in 1915.  In her fifties and sixties, she found new work as a character actress, playing eccentric matrons in films like Camille (1936), Angel (1937), The Blue Bird (1940), and The Man Who Came to Dinner (1942).  She is best remembered for her portrayal of Scarlett's dizzy Aunt Pittypat in Gone With the Wind (1939).
