    David O. Selznick Signed Document. The offspring of a film-producing family, David O. Selznick was one of the forerunners of the modern independent producer. As a studio executive during the first half of the 1930s, he was responsible for the making of such classics as "King Kong" and "A Tale of Two Cities." As an independent producer from 1936 to 1957, Selznick made a small but substantial body of dramas, comedies, and thrillers, 18 in all, many of which are cited among the best films of their era in their respective genres. Featured is a thank you letter from Selznick to reporter Jimmy Starr, dated September 25, 1930, and signed by the movie mogul in bold script. The letter is matted and framed along with a photo of Selznick sitting in front of a portrait of Vivien Leigh as Scarlett O'Hara in "Gone With the Wind," which earned him an Oscar for Best Picture. A great collector's item. With COA from PSA/DNA.
