WALTER BRENNAN The three-time Oscar Award-winner penned his signature on this agreement to appear in Stolen Life Document Signed: "Walter Brennan", 2p, 8½x11. Los Angeles, California. Dated January 12, 1945. In letter form from Samuel Goldwyn (signed by Goldwyn's "Attorney-in-fact") to Brennan informing him that he has "entered into an agreement with Warner Bros. Pictures, Inc. under the terms of which I have loaned your services for the role of 'Eben' in its photoplay now entitled 'STOLEN LIFE'…." Goldwyn reminds Brennan that his "contract of employment with Samuel Goldwyn Inc., Ltd. dated January 17, 1939…which has since been assigned to me…will terminate on January 17, 1945 by lapse of time and that I have not exercised an option to extend the employment contract for an additional term…." Goldwyn then extends a 1944 contract with Brennan "for a period equivalent to the period for which your services shall thereafter be required by Warner Bros." for Stolen Life. Brennan's salary for Stolen Life will be $2,500 per week. If, after completion of his services with Warner Bros., additional services are required for the film ("retakes, added scenes, transparencies, trick shots…."), Brennan will be paid $2,500 per week, "but shall be payable only for the days on which such additional services be rendered by you…the rate per day shall be one-sixth (1/6th) of the weekly rate….". Walter Brennan (1894-1974) won three of the first five Academy Awards for Best Actor in a Supporting Role: Come and Get It (1937), Kentucky (1939), and The Westerner (1941). He was also nominated for the same Oscar in 1942 for Sergeant York. A Stolen Life (1946), with Brennan portraying Eben Folger, starred Bette Davis as twin sisters Kate Bosworth and Patricia Bosworth. Lightly creased. File and staple holes at top. Otherwise, fine condition. Previously authenticated by PSA/DNA.
