    Jean Harlow Typed Letters Signed by Mama Jean. Two typed letters -- one on a folded sheet of paper, the other on personal stationery -- "from" Jean Harlow to a fan that were actually written and signed by her mother. The first is dated July 15, 1933, and reads in part: "We start work on the new picture 'Bombshell' next week. Lee Tracy is to play opposite me, and I think the picture should prove to be quite entertaining." (Tracy almost left the production because he felt his part was too small in comparison to Harlow's.) The second letter is dated December 23, 1933, and reads in part: "May I at this time offer my heartiest congratulations on your new found happiness. Your letter was a joy indeed and I sincerely hope I will have the pleasure of receiving many more of them." Both are signed by Mama Jean in black ink and are in Excellent condition with only a fair amount of tanning. The envelopes are in Very Good condition with light amount of soiling and tanning.
