Director Erle C. Kenton signed this document in 1966 to calculate his dues for the Directors Guild of America.
Document signed "Erle C. Kenton" in blue ink. Blue ink notations in unknown hand and black ink date stamp. 1 page, 8½x11. Jan. 8 , 1966. Kenton signed this document to report his earnings as a producer or director to the Directors Guild of America, Inc. so that they could calculate his dues. According to this document, he had no earnings in either capacity during 1965 and couldn't estimate his earnings for 1966. Kenton signed this document 6 years after his last directing job, on an episode of The Texan. Veteran movie man Kenton (1896-1980) got his start in films as one of Mack Sennett's Keystone Kops in 1914 and worked his way up to directing movies and TV shows. To be more specific, he directed almost 140 movies and TV shows between 1916 and 1960. Kenton proved adept directing at low comedy; his credits in that vein include his first feature-length movie, the 1920 Sennett production Down on the Farm, as well as the 1942 Abbott and Costello films Pardon My Sarong and Who Done It?. He was also good at horror films, with his best output in that genre being Island of Lost Souls (1932) and Ghost of Frankenstein (1945). His TV directing credits include Racket Squad (1952-1953), The Public Defender (1954-1955), Telephone Time (1956-1957) and The Texan (1958-1960). As if that weren't enough, Kenton also had a handful of acting credits between 1915 and 1942, including a bit part as Theodore Roosevelt in 1935's End of the Trail. Lightly creased. Random ink stains. Folded twice and unfolded. Otherwise in fine condition.
