DAVID NIVEN and JOE PASTERNAK The actor assents to a change in the credits clause of his contract for the film Ask Any Girl (1959), produced by Pasternak Documentary Letter signed: "David Niven" and "Joe Pasternak", 1p, 8½x11. Beverly Hills, California, 1959 January 28. Niven signs his consent to a documentary letter from Euterpe, Inc., modifying the credits clause of his original contract with the company, dated November 5, 1958, to allow the name of the film to appear ahead of the names of the main stars. Ask Any Girl, casting Niven opposite Shirley MacLaine, was released in 1959. London-born actor DAVID NIVEN (1910-1983) served with the Highland Infantry in Malta before working as a lumberman, news reporter, gunnery instructor to Cuban revolutionists, representative of a London wine firm in the United States and finally, in 1935, an extra in Mutiny on the Bounty. Working his way up from supporting roles to star status, he appeared in such 1950s hits as The Fighting Pimpernel (1950), The Moon is Blue (1953) and Around the World in 80 Days (1956). He eventually won the 1959 Academy Award for Best Actor for Separate Tables (1958). Although often cast in light comedies, such as the Pink Panther series (1964 and after), Niven could also play strong action roles, one of which being his performance in The Guns of Navarone (1961). In his later years, Niven displayed writing talent in several autobiographical publications. Hungarian-born film producer JOE PASTERNAK (1901-1991) was producing musicals in Austria and Germany before the rise of the Nazis led to his emigration to the U.S. His gift for making musicals come together continued to serve him well in Hollywood, where he was able to successfully manage a wide variety of talent: from Kathryn Grayson and Mario Lanza, to Elvis Presley (Girl Happy, 1965) and Connie Francis. He scored many Hollywood film successes, including Three Smart Girls (1936), Destry Rides Again (1939), and The Great Caruso (1951). Normal mailing folds. Two filing holes at top edge. Multiple staple holes at top left corner. Gently creased. Lightly soiled. Otherwise, fine condition. Previously authenticated by PSA/DNA.
