    Jack Albertson Contract for a Show at the New Orleans Superdome. Jack Albertson (1907-1981) was the eighth actor to become a "Triple Crown" award-winner - an Oscar (for 1968's The Subject Was Roses), a Tony (for the Broadway play of The Subject Was Roses) and an Emmy (for his TV series Chico and the Man). This is a contract dated May 19, 1976, signed by Albertson, calling for him to perform "one forty-five minute set" with Freddie Prinze, his Chico and the Man co-star, at the New Orleans Superdome July 3, 1976. This contract was signed at the time of the TV show's great popularity and eight months before Prinze's death by self-inflicted gunshot. The pink copy of the contract on William Morris Agency stationary outlines the terms (including the fact that the New Orleans Symphony would provide musical accompaniment) and compensation, and is signed in full by Albertson in black ink. Excellent condition. Very desirable form for an excellent character star and a fondly-remembered TV series. With COA from PSA/DNA.
