Actor and comedian Jack Carson signed and dated this document in 1938 to acknowledge an extension to his contract with RKO Radio Pictures.
Annotated document signed "Jack Carson" and by an assistant secretary at RKO Radio Pictures, Inc., both in blue ink. 1 page, 8 ½ x 11, on RKO Radio Pictures, Inc. letterhead, carbon copy. April 23, 1938, signed and dated by Carson on April 26, 1938. Addressed to Mr. Jack Carson c/o Frank Stempel Agency, Los Angeles, California. Carson signed this to acknowledge that RKO Radio Pictures was exercising an option in his May 28, 1937 contract with the studio to extend his exclusive services to them for 26 weeks, beginning on May 27, 1938. Carson appeared in 15 movies in 1938, all of them RKO Radio films: Bringing Up Baby, Carefree, Condemned Woman, Everybody's Doing It, Go Chase Yourself, Having Wonderful Time, Law of the Underworld, Mr. Doodle Kicks Off, Night Spot, Quick Money, She's Got Everything, The Maid's Night Out, The Saint in New York, This Marriage Business and Vivacious Lady. Canadian-born actor and comedian Carson (1910-1963) got his first movie contract with RKO, where he spent an uncomfortable few years essaying bits in "A" pictures and supporting parts in "B" films. His fortunes improved when he moved to Warner Bros. in 1941, and Carson proved himself to be an able dramatic actor in films such as The Hard Way (1943) and Mildred Pierce (1945). Continuing to alternate comic and dramatic (sometimes villainous) roles throughout the 1950s, Carson starred in his own Jack Benny-style radio series, appeared successfully as a stand-up comedian in Las Vegas and was one of four rotating hosts on the 1950 TV variety series, All-Star Revue. Lightly toned and creased. Lightly rippled at bottom edge. Staple holes at tope edge. Folded once vertically and thrice horizontally. Otherwise in fine condition.
