Sale Price $405.00
Comedian Jack Benny signed this document in 1935 to authorize someone to accept his pay from MGM.
Document signed "Jack Benny.". 1 page, 8½x10¾, two binder holes at top edge. April 17, 1935. Addressed to Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Corporation, Culver City, California. Benny signed this document to notify MGM that he had authorized Harry M. Baldwin to accept any checks or other money that the studio owed him. Vaudeville comedian Benny (1894-1974, born Benjamin Kubelsky in Chicago, Illinois) hosted a popular radio show from 1933, moving The Jack Benny Program smoothly to TV (1950-1965). His comic image as a tone-deaf, penny-pinching bachelor contradicted the real Benny, a philanthropist, devoted husband and competent violinist. He appeared in over 25 movies, the most critically acclaimed being To Be or Not To Be (1942). Lightly toned and creased. Light tear in top left corner. Folded twice and unfolded. Otherwise in fine condition.
