    Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz "Forever Darling" Signed Contract. A two-page copyright assignment between Zanra Productions and Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz, dated August 21, 1968, signed by Ball in blue ink and Arnaz in black on the second page. The movie, made in 1956, had been Desilu's initial attempt at film production, and was the duo's follow-up to their highly successful The Long, Long Trailer. It failed at the box office, and most subsequent attempts to bring projects to the big screen were aborted, until the more successful Yours, Mine, and Ours (with Ball and Henry Fonda) was released in 1968. (Forever Darling was produced at Desilu under the aegis of Zanra Productions -- "Arnaz" spelt backwards.) In Very Fine condition with mild overall toning, staple holes to the upper left corner, and some creasing and a small stain near the top edge of the front page. From the collection of John Strangi. Accompanied by LOA from PSA/DNA.
