    Description

    Jean Harlow Typed Letters Signed by Mama Jean. These two typed response letters to a fan were both signed by Harlow's mother rather than by the actress. The first, dated August 12, 1933, ironically reads in part: "You asked me if I answered your letters personally. Indeed I do. I dictate all my personal correspondence to my secretary as I do not have the time to write them myself." The second, dated November 1, 1934, reads in part: "There is no new picture scheduled at the present time but I expect to get the call to work soon and expect that our next picture will be China Seas." Both letters are on personal stationery and in Excellent condition, with a less-than-expected amount of wear and tear.
