ART: Added 3 more photos of Joan at the 1948 Urban League event (see 4/18 entry below), this time posing with her completed painting. (Oh, and guess who shot these photos?! Future director Stanley Kubrick, then a 20-year-old on assignment for Look magazine.)

LETTERS: Added 9 new letters.
1932: Handwritten page-long Christmas note to friends with thanks for helping her. (Anything from the '30s is rare, and I hadn't seen this stationery before.)
To a fan, with news of the upcoming Strait-Jacket ("a real shocker") and autographed photo enclosed.
1970: To a fan, with thanks for the "fine color picture of Christina." (Unfortunately, no copy of this delight is included here.)

1942: Publicity for Reunion in France with Philip Dorn.
1943: On the set of Above Suspicion with Fred MacMurray.
1947 PHOTOS: Added 9 photos for Daisy Kenyon:
ABOUT: Back in the '70s I was a precocious kid who read the daily papers, news and columns. I was later shocked to discover that the photos of the columnists (both local and national, like "Dear Abby") were left over from 1959 or something: What? Not ageless? In brief, because of MY own past trauma, I've updated my "About" photo to a shot I took today, as opposed to the old one from 2007, when I was younger and cuter. I took about 50 selfies, and this was the only one with an "orb" appearing on it (right at my jugular)-- so let's just say it might be Joan approved.
1934: Chained -- Publicity with Otto Kruger.
1937: A screen shot from The Bride Wore Red.
The Shining Hour -- Film still with Robert Young.
LETTERS: 1930 to a fan re her hobbies (collecting dolls--all sorts) and the upcoming Great Day. (Joan's letters from the '30s are rare, and this is a good example of both her stationery and still-not-perfected signature at the time, as well as of the general type of responses she then gave to fans.)
1929: Publicity with... the first piece of transatlantic air freight in history! Woooo! (Read the accompanying snipe for all the details.)
1930: A screen shot from Montana Moon with Ricardo Cortez.
MAGAZINES: An August 1927 cover of Japan's "The Play and Movie."
1927: A screen shot from The Unknown.
Rose-Marie -- A bigger, better replacement film still with House Peters and James Murray.
Dream of Love -- Publicity shot.
1960: Color candid on 46th St. in NYC.
1963: Color in the Oval Office with President Kennedy to promote "Mental Health Week."
