    Description

    Clark Gable Signed Contract. Sixteen-page contract, dated January 30, 1960, between Gable and United Artists engaging the actor to appear in the movie "The Misfits" opposite Marilyn Monroe and Montgomery Clift, signed on the last page by Gable in blue ink. Released in 1961, it would be his last movie. On the last day of filming, Clark Gable said, "Christ, I'm glad this picture's finished. She [Monroe] damn near gave me a heart attack." The next day, Gable suffered a massive coronary; he died 11 days later. Monroe died less than a year later, and Clift followed suit in 1966, earning the movie the nickname "the Death Picture." The contract is in good condition, with some tearing and wear to the edges and the usual staple and binder holes. With COA from PSA/DNA.
