Thalberg signs a $2.00 check for Green's Art Store in 1923. Countersigned by his studio manager, M.E. Greenwood.
Check signed: "I Thalberg", and countersigned, "M.E. Greenwood", 8½x3½. Los Angeles, California, 1923 July 24. Check #2835, drawn on the account of Louis B. Mayer Studios at Los Angeles Trust and Savings Bank, in the amount of $2.00, payable Green's Art Store. Movie producer Irving Thalberg (1899-1936) was dubbed "the boy wonder" for his successes at Universal Pictures and then M-G-M. A perfectionist, he encouraged multiple retakes in order to get a scene right. The modest Thalberg refused to allow his name to be included in the film credits. Dogged by illnesses throughout his life, Thalberg produced such famous films as Grand Hotel (1932), Mutiny on the Bounty (1935), The Good Earth and A Day at the Races (both 1937). His widow was actress Norma Shearer. In 1937, the Academy of Motion Pictures named its memorial award in his honor. Small hole left of center section. Thalberg signed this check one day shy of his 24th birthday, in the year he produced his first film, Merry-Go-Round. M.E. Greenwood was a studio manager for MGM who worked closely with Thalberg. Before he took on the stressful job of managing profits and spending at MGM, Greenwood was an Arizona faro dealer. Processing stamps (near signature, but legible). Otherwise, fine condition.
