    Buddy Ebsen's Personal Unsigned Copy of his Original Beverly Hillbillies Contract. Did Buddy Ebsen know he was about to strike a bonanza when he reviewed this December 14, 1961 Filmways TV Productions, Inc. contract that wooed him into the fold of The Beverly Hillbillies? Whatever his instincts, the details are all there: salary and various compensations, options and every angle a show business lawyer can foresee -- including "fire, epidemic, earthquake, flood, explosion or embargo..." The contract runs 17 pages with various addenda pages and comes in a Gang, Tyre, Rudin and Brown, Attorneys at Law legal folder. "Next thing ya' know, ol' Jed's a millionaire...!" In Excellent condition. From the Buddy Ebsen Estate.
