THE ACTRESS ENTERS INTO A MANAGEMENT CONTRACT "FOR 'MARRIAGE GO ROUND' ONLY"
 
CLAUDETTE COLBERT. Partly Printed Carbon DS: "Claudette Colbert" in ink as Actor, 4p, 8½x11, conjoined leaves. Los Angeles, California, 1976 January 15. On letterhead of Actors' Equity Association. Headed: "Exclusive Management Contract/Under Rule A". Colbert employs Webb as her "sole and exclusive agent in the legitimate theatre industry" for a period of one year, commencing on January 15, 1976. She was to pay Webb ten percent "of all monies and other considerations", except under specific conditions detailed in the contract. This contract was for Colbert's appearance in the play, Marriage Go Round, only. Also signed: "Ruth Webb" as Agent. The Marriage-Go-Round ran on Broadway from October 29, 1959-February 13, 1960. Colbert was nominated for a Tony Award for Best Actress in a Play for her role as Content Lowell (opposite Charles Boyer). Paris-born actress Claudette Colbert (1903-1996) was brought to New York at the age of seven, and she embarked on a stage career in 1925. Colbert disliked film acting, but audiences responded to her beauty and cultured voice, so she forsook the stage for Hollywood. Her popularity (and salary) skyrocketed after she was cast as "the wickedest woman in history", Nero's unscrupulous wife Poppaea, in the Biblical epic, The Sign of the Cross (1932). Colbert showed her flair for sophisticated comedy by winning the 1934 Academy Award for Best Actress for It Happened One Night. Traveling the usual "fading star" route, Colbert made films in Europe and a budget Western in the U.S. before returning triumphantly to Broadway. In 1961, she returned to Hollywood as Troy Donahue's mother in Parrish. It would be her last film appearance until the 1987 TV movie, The Two Mrs. Grenvilles. Slightly creased with folds, lower horizontal fold at the upper loops of the "Cl" in Claudette and the "t" of Colbert. Fine condition.
