Excellent vintage 8x10-inch matte-finish black and white MGM studio portrait for 1943's Above Suspicion, boldly signed and inscribed in black fountain pen in the 1940s. In fine condition, with very mild silvering in her hat, barely detectable when the photograph is viewed head-on. Electrifying Hollywood icon Joan Crawford nabbed an Academy Award for Mildred Pierce (1945), and was nominated twice more, for Possessed (1947) and Sudden Fear (1952). Her wonderful body of work also included Rain (1932), Grand Hotel (1932), The Women (1939), The Gorgeous Hussy (1946), The Women (1939), Humoresque (1946), Johnny Guitar (1956), Whatever Happened to Baby Jane? (1962), and the cult horror flick Strait-Jacket (1964).
