Two pages (but different sizes), an Actors' Equity Association 'Standard Run-of-the-Play' agreement, dated "3rd December 1948," signed on both pages in blue fountain pen ink by the actress who made this character/play famous first in 1928 and then continued on with various revivals throughout the decades (including this one in 1948), two-hole punch marks on top and bottom margins; included with three rare black and white stills, vintage prints with a glossy finish, depicting West and others at a 1934 Paramount Convention Delegates party in Chicago, typed press snipes affixed to verso, evidently removed from a key book as four-hole punch marks on left margin indicate.
