Judy Garland, Jerry Flynn and George LiBirth sign a document agreeing that Judy Garland will perform at the Rochester Community War Memorial on October 17, 1961.
Typed Document Signed: "Jerry Flynn" and "George LiBirth" under "Agreed to and accepted" and "Judy Garland" for Kingsrow Enterprises, Inc., 2p, 8½x11, separate sheets. No place, but likely New York City, 1961 September 18. Garland contracts for a performance at the Rochester Community War Memorial on October 17, 1961. Begins: "Agreement made this date between JERRY FLYNN, Station WVET, 17 Clinton Avenue South, Rochester 4, New York, hereinafter called First Party, and KINGSROW ENTERPRISES, INC., care of Freddie Fields Associates, Ltd., 410 Park Avenue, New York, N.Y., hereinafter called Second Party." In part: "First Party hereby warrants that he is the operator herein at the present time and for the duration of this contract, and engages Second Party, and Second Party hereby agrees to supply The Judy Garland Show, consisting of Judy Garland, Mort Lindsey (or a conductor or pianist of like import), John Bello (or a trumpeter of like import), William Lavorgna (or a drummer of like import) and Howard Hirsch (or a percussionist of like import). Said show shall be presented for a single performance at the Rochester Community War Memorial, 100 Exchange Street, Rochester, New York, on Tuesday, October 17, 1961 at 8:30 P.M., for which First Party agrees to pay Second Party, and which Second Party agrees to accept as full payment, the sum of Fifteen Thousand Dollars ($15,000.00)...In addition, First Party agrees to furnish and to pay for a 28-man orchestra as per the attached schedule of instrumentation (not present), and for any musicians required by the American Federation of Musicians in connection with the engagement...." This show was part of a 31-city tour in 1961, beginning in Miami in January and ending in Washington, D.C. in December. Judy Garland (1922-1969) sang on stage with her sisters in the late 1920s and appeared on records and films from 1936, but her breakthrough to superstardom came with her role as Dorothy in The Wizard of Oz (1939), singing her signature song, "Over the Rainbow". A competent actress and superbly gifted singer, Garland won an Oscar (with 2 more nominations), three Grammys (plus 6 of her recordings in the Grammy Hall of Fame), a Tony, and at least three Emmy nominations during her legendary career. By the late 1940s, her film career was suffering as a result of personal problems, including struggles with alcohol and the barbiturates that finally killed her, but she made a dazzling comeback in concert tours of the 1960s, especially Judy at Carnegie Hall (1961). Garland is the mother of actress Liza Minnelli and screenwriter/producer Lorna Luft. Lightly creased. Staple holes at upper left blank corners. Two file holes at upper margin. Fine condition.
