Susan Hayward Signed Letter. Besides having been one of Hollywood's all-time most beautiful actresses, the distinctions of Susan Hayward include an Academy Award for Want to Live! (1958) and having the only footprints in Grauman's Chinese Theatre's forecourt set in gold dust. This amusing 7.5" x 10.5" typed letter is on the personal stationary of Hayward's late husband (F. Eaton Chalkley), dated September 28, 1966, and written from her home in Florida to a business friend regarding a bill sent her: "...I received a notice from these cookies that I owe them money... If you have anything in your files on this I wish you'd let me know as soon as possible -- so that they don't Fi-Fa me -- because if they did that I'd just have to lower the boom and Fo-Fuum them..." She concludes the letter "Much love, Susan" in black ink and adds a typed "P.S. What is a Fi-Fa?". The letter, written shortly before the release of Valley of the Dolls (in which Hayward replaced Judy Garland) comes with the original mailing envelope postmarked Fort Lauderdale, Fla. ("Susan Hayward Very Funny" is written in pencil on it by a previous owner) and the $67.68 bill notice in question. The address where Hayward lived in Ft. Lauderdale after her husband's death appears on both the letter and the envelope. Susan Hayward was a great film actress and personality and this letter perfectly captures her vivacity and humor. In Very Fine condition.
