    Yvonne De Carlo Signed "Ten Commandments" Contract. Set of three agreements between De Carlo and Paramount pictures, casting her for the role of "Sephora" in Cecil B. DeMille's Biblical epic. Included is a seven-page agreement and separate two-page amendment, both dated September 10, 1954, and a letter of agreement dated May 28, 1955, all of which are signed by the actress. De Carlo appeared opposite such talented performers as Charlton Heston, Yul Brynner, Anne Baxter, and Edward G. Robinson, and the movie was a huge hit for Paramount and has long been considered a classic. The documents are in overall Very Fine condition with mild wear and binder and staple holes to the top edges, with some mild to moderate tanning and some creasing and wear to the 1955 letter. From the collection of John Strangi. Accompanied by LOA from PSA/DNA.
