OTTO PREMINGER and ROBERT GOTTSCHALK
Both sign a document requiring full insurance coverage on equipment leased by Gottschalk's Panavision to Preminger's Sigma Productions.
Document signed: "Otto Preminger/Pres." of Sigma Productions, Inc., and "Robert E. Gottschalk" as President of Panavision, Inc.., 8½x11. No place, no date. Ink signatures on a printed form letter. On behalf of Sigma Productions, Preminger commits to insure fully all equipment leased from Panavision, while in transit and in use, at full valuation and against all risks. Film director OTTO PREMINGER (1906-1986), who became an independent producer and director in the early 1950s, was nominated for Academy Awards for Best Director for Laura (1944) and The Cardinal (1963). His films, which often broke new ground in Hollywood, also include Forever Amber (1947), Stalag 17 (1953), The Moon is Blue (1953), Carmen Jones (1954), The Man With the Golden Arm (1955), Porgy and Bess (1959), Anatomy of a Murder (1959), Exodus (1960), Advise and Consent (1962), In Harm's Way (1965) and Tell Me That You Love Me, Junie Moon (1970). Preminger, who produced, directed and staged a number of Broadway plays from 1935-1973, he is also known to TV audiences for his portrayal of the villainous Mr. Freeze in the Batman TV series. ROBERT GOTTSCHALK (1918-1982), a camera technician, developed projection lenses compatible with the new Cinema Scope film techniques introduced in the early 1950s. The founder of Panavision, which leased this equipment to movie production companies, Gottschalk won two Oscars for scientific or technical achievement. In 1982, Gottschalk was found brutally murdered in his Los Angeles home, the victim of many stab wounds and blunt force trauma. The murder remains unsolved. Panavision was careful with its valuable new film equipment, hence this insistence on insurance at full valuation and against all risks. Lightly creased at corners. Lightly toned at left edge. Otherwise, fine condition.
