Contract signed: "Monte Blue", 25 pages, 9x14. Burbank, California, 1943 April 14. Exclusive studio contract with Warner Bros. for the duration of 13 weeks at a pay of $125 per week. Silent screen leading man and "talkies" character actor Monte Blue (1887-1963), who was sometimes billed G.M. (for Gerald Montgomery) Blue, began his career as a stuntman with the D.W. Griffith Studios before making his debut as an extra in The Birth of a Nation (1915). After his breakthrough role in Orphans of the Storm (1921), Blue starred opposite the most popular leading ladies of the day, including Gloria Swanson, Clara Bow and Norma Shearer. He made his last feature film in 1954. Blue also appeared on the small screen in two made-for-TV movies in 1966 and on a number of TV Western series from 1949 (The Lone Ranger) to 1960 (Rawhide). The year before he signed this contract, Blue had appeared in an un-billed role in one of Warner Bros. greatest films, Casablanca. He remained a contract player with the studio for many years.
