Vintage 1951 double weight 8″ x 10″ photograph featuring Joan Crawford, autographed and inscribed to Warner Brothers publicity man Robert Graham Wahn. Captured by Hollywood photographer Paul A. Hesse, known for his Sunset Strip studio, this photograph comes with Hesse’s credit stamp on the reverse.

Crawford has signed the photo: “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 in her career, 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 Joan Crawford autograph was consigned directly from the family of Robert Graham Wahn. Signed photos such as this are a wonderfully tangible piece of movie history, shedding light on the personal and professional relationships that existed within the industry during Hollywood’s Golden Age.
