DAVID WAYNE, HAL B. WALLIS, JOSEPH HAZEN
David Wayne signs his name on a document amending his contract for an upcoming film, saying that he shall be listed as a co-star with fellow actor Jerry Lewis. Also signed by Hal B. Wallis and Joseph Hazen as producers
Document signed: "David Wayne", "Hal B. Wallis", and "Joseph H. Hazen", 2 pages, 8½x11. Hollywood, California, 1957 March 7. Wayne signs a letter of understanding accepting an amendment to a employment contract with Paramount Pictures. The amendment stipulates that Wayne's name shall be listed no lower than second in the credits (beneath that of Jerry Lewis), and details additional terms for placement and size of Wayne's listing. DAVID WAYNE spent most of his screen time at 20th Century-Fox, where, among other things, he did two co-starring stints with Marilyn Monroe (1952's We're Not Married, 1953's How to Marry a Millionaire), played theatrical impresario Sol Hurok in Tonight We Sing (1953) and portrayed schizophrenic Joanne Woodward's long-suffering husband in Three Faces of Eve (1957). He played "special guest villain" The Mad Hatter on Batman, and was a regular in the TV weekly series Norby (1955), The Good Life (1973), Ellery Queen (1975, as Inspector Queen), Dallas (1978) and House Calls (1980). Though not mentioned in this document, the 1957 film starring Jerry Lewis and David Wayne was The Sad Sack. HAL B. WALLIS (1898-1986) rose from office boy, forced by poverty to leave school at 14, to become one of Hollywood's most successful and respected producers. Working at Warner Bros. until 1944, he was an independent producer thereafter. His greatest triumph was Casablanca (1942), but he produced one movie blockbuster after another from Little Caesar (1930) to Rooster Cogburn (1975). His film credits read like the syllabus for a course in the history of American films: I am a Fugutive from a Chain Gang, The Charge of the Light Brigade, The Adventures of Robin Hood, Knute Rockne, All American, The Maltese Falcon, Sergeant York, Yankee Doodle Dandy, Gunfight at the OK Corral, King Creole, Becket and True Grit. The Academy of Motion Pictures twice awarded him the Irving Thalberg Award. Besides his role on The Sad Sack, JOSEPH HAZEN (1898-1994) produced A Girl Named Tamiko (1962). Light surface creases. Corners slightly worn and creased. Staple holes in in top left corner. Lightly toned. Slightly soiled on corners and edges. Otherwise, fine condition.
