Joan Crawford

You may recall an earlier post of a 1927 photo of Bert sketching actress Joan Crawford for her latest film, Taxi Dancer. Bert had just signed with MGM studios and had moved to Los Angeles. Here it is again,

A little more digging has unearthed the tables being turned on Bert.

Taken from the magazine, Hollywood Filmograph April 1927

Joan Crawford was really just starting out in Movies in 1927.

Crawford was married 4 times, and had many other lovers….. she famously said, “Love is a fire. But whether it is going to warm your hearth or burn down your house, you can never tell.” – Joan Crawford

This was printed under the photo of Joan sketching Bert. We see in addition to sketch artist work Bert was also writing movie scripts for MGM. The John Gilbert sketch below came up for auction recently (can’t find price of sketch) and is sourced from Printerest. Gilbert was a very famous actor who went from the Silent movies to ‘the Talkies’ Here is his wikipedia page.

Here is Bert’s sketch of actor John Gilbert.
