    Irving Brecher and Gummo Marx Signed Document. A five-page agreement dated January 14, 1944 and signed by Gummo Marx and screenwriter Irving Brecher. Brecher was an uncredited writer on the famous movie The Wizard of Oz, he also contributed to the landmark Zeigfield Follies as well as many other films during his lifetime. Gummo left the Marx Brothers just when they were reaching popularity because he felt he lacked the performing skills of his brothers, and thus never appeared in any of the Marx Brothers films. He later joined Zeppo in managing the team and achieved much success as an agent. In very good condition with slight overall toning, binder holes at the top edge, some light creasing, and a small tear to the lower left corner. With COA from PSA/DNA.
