Vallée initialed this clipped rider from a management contract with an unidentified agent in blue ink.
Document initialed "R. V." by Vallée in blue ink. With unknown initials in blue ink. 1 page, 8¼x2. This is a printed rider to a contract with an unidentified management agent or agency. It appears to be a clipped document, as there's a cut-off descender from an unknown signature near the top edge. In full: "Artist empowers Agent, if agent so desires, to collect and receive any or all moneys or other consideration payable to Artist under any contract of employment with respect to which Agent is entitled to any commissions hereunder, and Agent shall pay over to Artist all moneys so collected or received by Agent, after first deducting therefrom all commissions due to Agent pursuant hereto." From the mid-1920s to the mid-1950s, Vallée (1901-1986, born Hubert Prior Vallée in Island Pond, Vermont) enjoyed a successful career on radio, in movies, in Broadway musicals and with a solo nightclub act. His films include The Palm Beach Story (1942), I Remember Mama (1948), The Helen Morgan Story (1957), The Night They Raided Minsky's (1968), Won Ton Ton, the Dog Who Saved Hollywood (1976) and How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying (1967), in which he reprised his role from the successful 1961 Broadway musical. The first singer to be called a "crooner", Vallée was known for carrying a small megaphone and for his catch phrase "Heigh-Ho, Everyone", which he first used when appearing at New York's Heigh-Ho Club. Lightly toned and creased. Printed type is broken. Two staples holes neat left edge with light rust stains. Irregular edges. Otherwise in fine condition.
