His double endorsement of a 1943 check from the company he co-founded, Warner Bros.
Check endorsed twice: "H. M. Warner/For deposit only to the/account of/H.M.Warner/personal account", 8¼x3¼. Burbank, California, 1943 May 8. Check no. 36, drawn on the account of the Producers Settlement Corporation (disbursing agent for Warner Bros. Pictures) at the Bank of America, payable to H. M. Warner for $3,223.71. for deductions which include a war bond purchase. Harry M. Warner (1881-1958), born as Hirsch Moses Wonsal in Russian-controlled Poland, immigrated to the US with his family in 1889. After a series of not very successful business ventures, Warner and his three younger brothers began distributing films in 1903, purchased the first of several theaters in 1905, and began making films of their own in 1917. In 1918 they established a Hollywood studio. The corporate name of Warner Bros. Pictures dates from 1923, by which time the company had its first hit movie, The Gold Diggers, and its first big star, Rin Tin Tin. In 1927, Warner Bros. first talking film, The Jazz Singer. Harry Warner focused on the business end of the movie business. Harry Warner sold most of his interest in Warner Bros. in 1956, in a complicated series of maneuvers in which he felt duped by his youngest brother, Jack. Thereafter he devoted his life to his family and his racehorses. Usual bank cancellation holes not near signature. Fold crease not near signature. Fine condition.
