Document signed twice: "Lynn Bari", 1 page, 8½x11. Hollywood, California, 1946 September 27. Bari grants to the Motion Picture Relief Fund, Inc., its successors and assigns, the exclusive right to use her name, autograph, photographic likeness, or artist's sketch of the likeness, for reproduction on engraved, embossed or printed stamps, and in stamp albums, and in connection with the advertising and exploitation of these stamps and stamp albums for sale throughout the world. Also signed by a representative of Twentieth Century-Fox. American actress Bari (1913-1989) started her career as a chorus girl in Dancing Lady (1933). By 1938, she had graduated to strong supporting roles in A- pictures and became the queen "B" in the B's, frequently appearing as "the other woman". Some of her most notable work includes Hollywood Cavalcade (1939), Kit Carson (1940), Blood and Sand (1941) and Hello Frisco, Hello (1943, one of her best "other women" turns). She also worked extensively in early TV, mostly in live drama.The Motion Picture Relief Fund was founded in 1921 to assist ill and needy film industry veterans, as expressed in its motto: "We take care of our own." The fund raised money through voluntary payroll deductions and celebrity events. As President of the Fund from 1939 until his death in 1956, film and radio star Jean Hersholt conceived Hollywood Star Stamps as a fundraising method. These stamps, 468 in all, were sold at dime stores after World War II in sheets of 6-12, at 10 cents per sheet, and were an immediate hit with collectors. Now called the Motion Picture and Television Fund, the non-profit organization funds its own hospital and retirement home. It confers the Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award annually at the Academy Awards ceremony to "an individual in the motion picture industry whose humanitarian efforts have brought credit to the industry." Filing holes at left edge. Multiple mailing folds. Staple holes at top left corner. Otherwise, fine condition.
