GONE WITH THE WIND MOVIE CAST - DOCUMENT SIGNED:

In the best year of his career, Mitchell is loaned out to play Scarlett's father.

Document signed: "Daniel T. O'Shea" on behalf of Selznick International Pictures, 3p, 8½x11. Also signed by a Vice President of Columbia Pictures (name illegible). Hollywood, California, 1939 January 26.

Lightly toned. Paperclip impression in upper left. Staple holes in two pages. Otherwise, fine condition. Accompanied by unsigned photo of Thomas Mitchell (b/w, 8x10).

The saga of the old South remains one of the most beloved films of all time. Thomas Mitchell (1892-1962), a successful playwright and Broadway actor, had a stellar film year in 1939, appearing in five classic movies: Gone with the Wind, Stagecoach (for which he won an Oscar as Best Supporting Actor), Only Angels Have Wings (the name ultimately given to the "Plane No. 4" project), Mr. Smith Goes to Washington and The Hunchback of Notre Dame. The Oscar (and a subsequent Tony and Emmy) notwithstanding, Mitchell is best remembered as Gerald O'Hara, the master of Tara. Two items.

SAMUEL F. B. MORSE - AUTOGRAPH LETTER SIGNED 05/18/1843

SAMUEL F. B. MORSE - AUTOGRAPH LETTER SIGNED 05/18/1843:

One year before he sent his first telegraph message, Morse signs an autograph letter to Treasury Secretary Spencer, requesting $600 to cover the cost of his lab and office.

Important ALS: "Saml F.B. Morse", 1 page, 8x10. New York, 1843 May 18. To Secretary of the Treasury John C. Spencer, who has penned: "Approved/J.C.S." on verso of the integral sheet. In full: "I have engaged eligible rooms for my laboratory and Office at the rate of Four hundred dollars pr annum from the 1st of May instant, which I have the honor to submit for the approbation of the Honorable the Secretary. The sum contemplated in my estimates of the 10th of March handed in to the Department is Six hundred dollars." On March 3, 1843, Congress granted Morse $30,000 to build a telegraph line on poles. The law provided the money "for testing the capacity and usefulness of the system of electro-magnetic telegraphs invented by Samuel F.B. Morse of New York" so any other funds, such as rent for his laboratory and office, had to be applied for by Morse. An experimental telegraph line was built by Morse between Washington and Baltimore and, a year after this letter was written, on May 24, 1844, Morse sent the first message: "What hath God wrought!"
