DANA ANDREWS Consent form authorizing the Motion Picture Relief Fund to reproduce Andrews' signature and likeness for a series of stamps raising money for needy film industry veterans. He has signed twice, once as an autograph sample and again to grant permission. A remarkable, perfectly verified example! Document signed twice: "Dana Andrews", 1 page, 8½x11. Hollywood, California, 1947 August 6. Andrews grants to the Motion Picture Relief Fund, Inc., its successors and assigns, the exclusive right to use her name, autograph, photographic likeness, or artist's sketch of the likeness, for reproduction on engraved, embossed or printed stamps, and in stamp albums, and in connection with the advertising and exploitation of these stamps and stamp albums for sale throughout the world. The agreement is contingent upon permission of Samuel Goldwyn Productions. Dana Andrews (1909-1992) appeared in such films as The Ox-Bow Incident (as the innocent lynching victim, 1943), Laura (1944), The Best Years of Our Lives (1946) and Airport 1975. He also starred in the television series Bright Promise (1969-1970) and made a number of made-for-TV movies. Andrews was President of the Screen Actors Guild from 1963-1965. The Motion Picture Relief Fund was founded in 1921 to assist ill and needy film industry veterans, as expressed in its motto: "We take care of our own." The fund raised money through voluntary payroll deductions and celebrity events. As President of the Fund from 1939 until his death in 1956, film and radio star Jean Hersholt conceived Hollywood Star Stamps as a fundraising method. These stamps, 468 in all, were sold at dime stores after World War II in sheets of 6-12, at 10 cents per sheet, and were an immediate hit with collectors. Now called the Motion Picture and Television Fund, the non-profit organization funds its own hospital and retirement home. It confers the Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award annually at the Academy Awards ceremony to "an individual in the motion picture industry whose humanitarian efforts have brought credit to the industry." Filing holes at left edge. Lightly toned around edges. Multiple mailing folds. Otherwise, fine condition.
