    Marian Marsh Early Contracts. A fascinating packet containing Marian Marsh's early contracts and papers with Pathé Studios (1928 and 1929) and Goldwyn Studios (1930), as well as the agreement she made in 1933 with the Edington-Vincent agency. The contracts offer three Marsh signatures: two under her birth name of Violet Krauth (on a Pathé and Goldwyn document) and one under "Marian Marsh" (the agency agreement, after she'd achieved stardom in Svengali). The 70-plus years-old papers are a bit tattered but they are intact and the signatures are clean and complete; the documents are in overall Very Good condition. The 14-page Goldwyn contract signing Violet/Marian for the film Whoopee is especially detailed and interesting (e.g., "...the artist shall supply, at her own expense, all shoes, hosiery and underclothing necessary..."). From the Marian Marsh Archive. Accompanied by LOA from PSA/DNA.
