No place, 1958 October 9.Two-page rider stapled in front, the first page of which is initialed "F.K.W.".

FRANK CAPRA (1897-1991), born in Sicily, was the winner of three Best Director Academy Awards: It Happened One Night (1934), Mr. Deeds Goes to Town (1936) and You Can't Take It With You (1938). He enjoyed total creative freedom on his sets and also directed, among other films, Lost Horizon (1937), Meet John Doe (1941) and It's A Wonderful Life (1946). Capra was the first Hollywood director to have his name precede a film's title. KEENAN WYNN (1916-1986), the son of actor Ed Wynn, had an acting career of 52 years and 168 roles in movies and television. His best-known role is probably that of Colonel "Bat" Guano in the Cold War satire, Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb (1964), but he also provided supporting performances in Between Two Women (1944), Easy to Wed (1946), Royal Wedding (1951), Kiss Me Kate (1953), The Man in the Gray Flannel Suit (1956) and Finian's Rainbow (1968). A Hole in the Head (1959) was the next to last film directed by Frank Capra. The star-studded cast, headed by Frank Sinatra and Edward G. Robinson, earned Capra a Best Director nomination from the Directors Guild of America and earned an Oscar for Sammy Cahn for the song "High Hopes." Frayed at top edge, which also has staple and binder holes. Light edge creases. Additional staple holes down left edge. Otherwise, fine condition.
