EDGAR BERGEN
Contract for the ventriloquist to appear on an untitled RCA radio program for the sum of $1,000
Contract signed: "Edgar Bergen", in blue ink, 3 pages, 8½x11. September 18, 1943. Hollywood, California. Contract for Bergen to appear on an RCA radio program for the sum of $1,000. Edgar Bergen (1903-1978, born in Chicago, Illinois) and his ventriloquist's dummy, Charlie McCarthy, were first heard over Rudy Vallee's radio program on December 17, 1936 and were an immediate hit. Bergen was promptly signed, and Bergen and McCarthy starred on NBC and later on CBS from 1937 to 1956. Charlie McCarthy was a sarcastic boy who managed to get into trouble, which always worried Edgar Bergen. McCarthyisms included: "Ambition is just an excuse for those without the good sense to be lazy" and "Hard work never killed anyone, but why take the chance?" Bergen was the father of Emmy Award-winning actress Candice Bergen. Toned. Light surface creases. Normal mailing folds. Corners slightly worn and creased. Ink note (unknown hand) on top left corner. Ink note slightly smeared. Binding holes on top margin. Ink haloed in some areas of contract, but legible. Otherwise, fine condition.
