GEORGE JESSEL
Hires William Morris as his agent for his radio show, That's My Kid.
Partly Printed Contract signed: "George Jessel", 3p, 8½x11. New York, 1948 April 7. To William Morris Agency, New York. In part: "I hereby employ you for a period of 90 days, commencing on the date hereof, as my sole and exclusive agent in the television field throughout the world, to negotiate, arrange and secure engagements for me in every capacity in said field, including but not limited to that of actor, performing artist, writer, composer, manager, director, producer, executive, consultant, technician or designer, announcer, commentator, or owner of unit or other package show or program...This agreement applies only to the package show now entitled 'THAT'S MY KID'." The second and third pages, entitled: "Limited Period Radio Authorization", clarifies that the agreement "applies only to the radio package show now entitled 'THAT'S MY KID'." GEORGE JESSEL (1898-1981) appeared in vaudeville and on Broadway before his radio show, That's My Kid. He starred on Broadway in The Jazz Singer, but when he wanted more money than what Warner Brothers had offered, he turned down the movie role, which eventually went to Al Jolson. It was Jessel who suggested the name "Garland" to the Gumm Sisters. Because when he introduced the "Gumm Sisters", it brought a laugh from the audience who thought they were a comedy act. Staple holes at upper left blank corners. File holes at upper blank margin. Rectangular shading affects second paragraph of first page. Overall, fine condition.
