Original Radio Contract from 1950 Signed by John Garfield and Rasalind Russell for Dinner At Eight. Original radio contract dated April 6, 1950 between actors Rosalind Russell and John Garfield for an hour long live performance of Dinner At Eight sponsored by Hotpoint, Inc. for $500. Contract typed on onion paper signed boldly in blue fountain pen ink by both. This during an extremely difficult time for Garfield being unfairly smeared by the House Un-American Activities Committee and blackballed by the studios including Warner Brothers with whom he deliverd some of his greatest work. From the stress and already a damaged heart, Garfield died less than two years later after this radio broadcast. at only 39 leaving behind outstanding performances in at least a dozen classic films.
Estimated Value $300 - 500.
