DANE CLARK Consent form authorizing the Motion Picture Relief Fund to reproduce his signature and likeness for a series of stamps raising money for needy film industry veterans. Clark has signed twice, once to give consent and again as an autograph sample. Also signed by a representative of Warner Bros. A perfectly verified example! Document signed twice: "Dane Clark", 1 page, 8½x11. Hollywood, California, 1946 July 25. Clark grants to the Motion Picture Relief Fund, Inc., its successors and assigns, the exclusive right to use his 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. Clark signs with the understanding that he will derive no financial benefit or obligation from this enterprise. A representative of his studio, Warner Bros., has also signed. Dane Clark (1915-1998) usually played a tough guy, often one from his native Brooklyn, in war and western movies of the 1940s and 1950s. His most highly regarded films included Moonrise (1948) and Go, Man, Go (1954). He starred in the TV series Wire Service (1956) and Bold Venture (1959), making dozens of guest appearances on such programs as Alfred Hitchcock Presents, The Twilight Zone and The Untouchables. 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. Staples holes at top left corner. Pencil marks (unknown hand). Otherwise, fine condition.
