16-YEAR-OLD ELIZABETH TAYLOR GIVES HER PERMISSION TO THE TRIBUNE-NEWS SYNDICATE TO USE HER NAME AND PICTURE IN THEIR NEWSPAPERS, GIVING HER FREE PUBLICITY

ELIZABETH TAYLOR.
Typed Document Signed: "Elizabeth Taylor", 1p, 8½x11. No place, 1949 February 23. Headed: "Release Form". In letter form to News Syndicate Co., Inc., New York, New York. Begins: "Gentlemen". In full: "In consideration of the publicity to be given to me and which may arise herefrom, my consent is hereby irrevocably given to you, your assignees and licensees, and to the Chicago Tribune-New York News Syndicate, Inc., and its subscribers and licensees, to use my name, picture, or portrait, in publications for editorial or promotional purposes, excluding, however, commercial advertising." Date handwritten by Taylor. In the year she signed this document, the future superstar and Academy Award winner would appear in two feature films: Conspirator and Little Women (as Amy March). In 1942, seven years before she signed this document, ten-year-old Elizabeth Taylor (1932-2011) made her screen debut in Universal's There's One Born Every Minute. Universal let her contract drop after the one film. In 1943, she was signed by M-G-M to a long-term contract which lasted into the 1960s. Taylor was nominated for five Academy Awards for Best Actress, the first four for M-G-M: Raintree Country (1958), Cat on a Hot Tin Roof (1959), Suddenly, Last Summer (1960), BUtterfield 8 (1961) and, for Warner Bros., Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf? (1967), winning in 1961 and 1967. While Taylor may have sought publicity at the time she signed this document, she was later the focus of extensive, unwanted attention in the press. In 1963, Taylor, known for her collection of husbands as well as film roles, starred in the epic Cleopatra. On the set, Taylor and co-star Richard Burton, married to different people, made international headlines with their passionate love affair. They eventually married, divorced, remarried and divorced again. Today, after numerous surgeries and personal tragedies, none of which escaped media scrutiny, Taylor is a living show business legend, retaining the star quality that has endeared her to millions of fans. She is internationally recognized for her humanitarian efforts, including raising millions of dollars for the fight against AIDS. Lightly creased. ¼-inch tears at mid-left and upper right blank edges. Fine condition.
