Document signed: "Robert Mitchum", "Dorothy Mitchum", "Reva Frederick", 1 page, 8½x11. No place, 1967 October 10. As the only Directors of Dorlite, a California Corporation, the signatories waive the holding of an annual meeting and assent to the election of officers: Robert Mitchum as President and Treasurer; Dorothy Mitchum as Vice President and Assistant Secretary; Reva Frederick as Vice President and Secretary. ROBERT MITCHUM (1917-1997) played mostly villains early in his film career, including Out of the Past (1947) and Cape Fear (1962). In 1945, he starred in The Story of G.I. Joe and earned his first and only Oscar nomination. He also portrayed detective Phillip Marlowe in Farewell My Lovely (1975) and The Big Sleep (1978), and starred in the TV miniseries The Winds of War (1983) and its sequel, War and Remembrance (1989). Mitchum was a drifter of uncertain occupation when he met and then married Dorothy Spence on March 15, 1940. They had three children. Robert Mitchum took up acting to support his family, graduating from bit parts during World War II to postwar stardom as "the embodiment of film noir" (Roger Ebert). DOROTHY MITCHUM (b. 1920) appeared in one film, 1949's The Big Steal, starring her husband. Mitchum fired his personal secretary, REVA FREDERICK, when he closed his office in 1981. Frederick sued for what she claimed was a verbal agreement from 1961 to pay her a pension. She dropped the suit in the face of evidence that she had embezzled millions of dollars from Mitchum over the years. Mitchum declined to prosecute. Stressed by these developments, Frederick suffered a stroke from which she never fully recovered. Frederick outlived Robert Mitchum, however, and extracted a measure of revenge as a source for Lee Server's unflattering biography, Baby I Don't Care (2001). Binding holes at left edge. Lightly toned. Otherwise, fine condition.
