TVGuide.com reports that Collectors Universe, on the Web site Autographs.com, is auctioning, in addition to celebrity yearbooks and handwritten notes from the stars, a typed letter from Alfred Hitchcock to Joan Crawford with an irresistible opening line. My dear Joan, the typed missive begins. In my very rare homosexual moments I often glance through the pages of Vogue, where the other day I saw a magnificent picture of you. The director then drops the subject of his homosexual moments and goes on to discuss at length a food item mentioned in the magazine.
