    Description

    Ava Gardner Handwritten Letter from Age 11. A magnificent five-page handwritten letter dated February 28, 1934, written by Gardner to her older sister Myra. In it she writes about friends, family, and school, and in the end she describes pretending to be Marion Davies while a friend pretended to be Bing Crosby -- a foreshadowing bit of make-believe from a future Hollywood megastar. The letter is in Very Fine condition with mild wear, two heavy fold creases, and moderate tanning. From the Ava Gardner Estate.
