Though Jolie, 39, was quite keen to buy Hemingway's 1926 Underwood, worth $250,000, the deal was called off for some unknown reason, reported a leading website.
Jolie's agent got in touch with LA Police Commission President Steve Soboroff, who has typewriter collection, including Hemingway's 1926 Underwood, a source said.
This summer the agent sent a deposit check from Jolie's production company, Chivan Productions, for $11,000, but at some point she had a change of heart and cancelled the deal, the source said.
