A contract for the actor to appear in a film titled High Victory
Contract: "Jeffrey Lynn", 5p, 8½x14. No place, 1952 February 26. Headed: "Television Artists' Employment Agreement". Lynn signs an agreement with Princess Pictures, Inc. to appear in a film tentatively titled High Victory for $1,500 and a 2½% share of gross receipts. Jeffrey Lynn (1909-1995) appeared in a number of feature films, including The Fighting 69th (1940), All This and Heaven Too (1940) and Million Dollar Baby (1941), but perhaps his "biggest" assignment was "starring" as Ashley Wilkes in the screen tests for David O. Selznick's 1939 epic, Gone With The Wind. Lynn, who read lines for such aspiring Scarlett O'Haras as Paulette Goddard and Frances Dee, left Hollywood two years later to become an Army intelligence officer in WWII (he was awarded a Bronze Star). Beginning in 1948, Lynn attempted to resume his screen career, appearing in such films as Butterfield 8 (1960) and Tony Rome (1967). He found greater success, however, as a stage and television actor, starring in two series, My Son Jeep (1953) and Star Stage (1955), and appearing on the soaps The Secret Storm (1966-1967) and The Edge of Night (1971). High Victory never made it to the screen. Staple and binder holes in upper margin. Top edge of first page is frayed. Otherwise, fine condition.
