Document signed: "Paul Henreid" and "Armina Marshall", 2p, 8½x11, front and verso. New York, N.Y., 1948 December 10. Letter of agreement wherein Henreid agrees to appear in the radio version of the play, The Game of Love and death, to be broadcast January 2, 1949. Henreid is to be paid $2,500 dollars for his starring role. Marshall signs on behalf of The Theatre Guild, Inc. Born in Trieste (now in Italy, then in the Austrian empire), PAUL HENREID (1908-1992) was originally cast in supporting roles, often as Germanic villains. After 1940, when he moved to Hollywood and became a US citizen, Henreid began to get starring roles. These included Now Voyager (1942) and Of Human Bondage (1946), but his most famous role was that of resistance leader Viktor Lazslo, Humphrey Bogart's rival for the affections of Ingrid Bergman in Casablanca (1942). Henreid could also swashbuckle, as in Buccaneers (1950). From the 1950s onward, Henreid focused on directing films (Dead Ringer, 1964) and TV episodes (Alfred Hitchcock Presents). ARMINA MARSHALL, who first appeared on the Broadway stage in 1924, became a prominent playwright and producer. The Theatre Guild, which she and husband Lawrence Langer founded in 1919, still flourishes, having produced 228 Broadway plays as of 2002. Marshall and Langer received a Tony Award for the stage version of Sunrise at Campobello in 1958 and a special Tony (1961) for organizing the first repertory group to tour the world for the U.S. State Department (at the behest of President John F. Kennedy). Lightly creased at corners. Horizontal fold creases. Fine condition.
