    Description

    Samuel Goldwyn and Jesse Lasky Signed Documents. Featured are two documents, each signed by a filmmaking titan: a one-page letter typed on personal stationery, dated October 12, 1927 and signed by producer Samuel Goldwyn, famous for his relentless ambition, bad temper, and genius for publicity; and a three-page agreement securing the services of screenwriter Jane Murfin, dated March 12, 1936 and signed by Jesse Lasky, co-founder of the Famous Players-Lasky Corporation, one of the major studios of the silent era (this letter is from the period when he had formed the short-lived Pickford-Lasky company with actress Mary Pickford). Both are in very good condition with only light tanning, the standard binder holes at the top of the pages, rusted paperclip indentations, and no creases. With COA from PSA/DNA.
