It's a Swell Life

The NYTimes today published the contents of a shoebox belonging to Donna Reed. Reed was a WWII 'pinup', and I've seen her as the love interest in It's a Wonderful Life. Soldiers wrote fan mail to her ("We think you're swell") and she apparently responded, and kept 300+ of the letters until her death.
