Joan Crawford Signed & Inscribed 1951 Photo by Paul A. Hesse

We sold this item at auction for $589
 in December 2022.

Vintage 1951 double weight 8″ x 10″ photograph of Joan Crawford, signed and inscribed to Warner Brothers publicity man Robert Graham Wahn: “To my darling Graham, with love, Joan” in deep blue ink.

Photographed by Paul A. Hesse (1896-1973), a prominent Hollywood photographer whose Sunset Strip studio became a hotspot for movie stars and industry notables, the photo features Hesse’s credit stamp on the reverse.

During this period, Joan Crawford starred in “Goodbye, My Fancy” and would shortly go on to receive an Academy Award nomination for her performance in “Sudden Fear” (1952).

This photo and many other autographed photos of classic Hollywood era movie stars were consigned to us directly from the family of Mr. Wahn.
