CONRAD NAGEL
The actor cancels his contract with the William Morris Agency as the agency has provided no employment for six months
Typed letter signed: "Conrad Nagel", ¾p, 8½x11. Chicago, Illinois, 1948 June 28. To William Morris Agency, Rockefeller Center, New York City, N.Y. Begins: "Dear Sirs". In full: "I have been under contract to your agency for the past year and a half. I have received no offer of employment from your agency for over six months. Therefore, in accordance with AFRA (sic) regulations I am hereby giving you notice that I wish to cancel our contract. I am in no way disappointed with your agency but it just seems we cannot get together on a deal. I have received only the greatest courtesy and consideration from all members of your organization with whom I have had contact, and I only hope that sometime in the future, if you will take me back, we can be together again. With best wishes. Yours sincerely." In 1948, Conrad Nagel (1897-1970), who was then a character actor, appeared in the films Stage Struck and The Vicious Circle. The following year, he would host the TV series, The Silver Theater, which he had previously hosted on radio. A stage actor since 1914, Nagel made his film debut in 1918 and became one of the top matinee idols of the silent screen. His feature film credits include Little Women (1918), Quality Street (1927), All That Heaven Allows (1956) and The Man Who Understood Women (1959, his last film). One of the 36 founders of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (and its President from October 1931-April 1933), Nagel received a special Academy Award for his work on the Motion Picture Relief Fund in 1939. Lightly creased at upper edge. Folds, horizontal fold touches the upper loops of the "C" in Conrad and "N" of Nagel. File holes at upper blank margin. Otherwise, fine condition.
