Appearing as a "gesture of good will" at the request of the Republic of Mexico, he will not be paid for his appearance, but is eligible for trave expense reimbursement not to exceed $5,000. Ink correction in the hand of an NBC executive places an 18-month time limit on re-broadcast rights. Mexican comic actor Cantinflas (1911-1993), immensely popular throughout the Spanish-speaking world, made 50 films in that language and had one big success on American screens (Around the World in Eighty Days,1956). Charlie Chaplin called him "the world's greatest comedian," and his "peladito," an intrepid, struggling Everyman, bore much resemblance to Chaplin's Little Tramp. Observances of the centenary of his birth (August 12, 1911) will be held throughout Latin America. Staple and staples wholes at top left corner. Top left corner creased and torn. Multiple ink notes (unknown hand) throughout document. Otherwise, fine condition.
