DescriptionDean Martin and Jerry Lewis Signed Agreement. Previously sold by Heritage in 2010, this is a single-page letter, dated April 23, 1953, from Wallis-Hazen Inc. to the comedy duo, countersigned by Martin and Lewis in blue ink. The agreement updates an employment agreement from May 19, 1952, and grants Lewis the right to use certain material in the movie Money From Home. The agreement dates from the transition period in the team's career when their NBC radio series concluded and Hal Wallis signed them to a production deal with Paramount, a deal that relocated them to Hollywood, though they would split as an act in 1956. In Excellent condition with minimal wear. LOA from JSA. COA from Heritage Auctions.
