    Bela Lugosi Signed Contract. A two-sided 8.5" x 22" Screen Actors Guild Minimum Contract for Free Lance Players, dated June 11, 1937 engaging Lugosi to co-star in the Republic serial SOS Coastguard, signed by him in black fountain ink and also initialed twice in regard to starting date and co-star billing, and once more on an attached flyer. Republic executive E. Goldstein has also signed the contract. It's notable that Lugosi's career was in trouble at the time; indeed, this was his last film work before Son of Frankenstein began shooting more than 16 months later. Also intriguing is that his character's name, as noted on the contract, is "Boroff," which sounds suspiciously like a contraction of the name of his rival, Boris Karloff. There are some small tears at the top of file hole area, otherwise Very Good condition. Accompanied by a COA from PSA/DNA.
