Signed 1965 agreement providing a production company "injunctive relief" if Beatty should fail to fulfill his obligations under a concurrent contract.
Carbon Document signed in ink: "Warren Beatty", 2 pages, 8½x11. No place, 1965 November 30. Document executed concurrently with a lending agreement between Tatiana Productions ("the Lender") and Gershwin-Kastner Productions ("Producer"). Beatty promises that he will remain available for his services under the lending agreement, even if his contract with Tatiana Productions should lapse. One clause stipulates that Beatty's services are of a "special, unique, unusual, extraordinary and intellectual character which gives them a peculiar value", and therefore Gershwin-Kastner may demand "injunctive relief" from any non-fulfillment on Beatty's part. Beatty, the younger brother of actress Shirley MacLaine, made an auspicious film debut in Splendor in the Grass (1961), after which he spent a number of years being written off by the more narrow-minded movie critics as a would-be Brando. Beatty took on his first film as producer/star in Bonnie and Clyde (1967) that turned into the most significant film of the year - and propelled Beatty from a handsome, talented film star into a powerful filmmaker. In 1981, Beatty produced, directed, co-scripted and acted in Reds, a spectacular recounting of the Russian Revolution as seen through the eyes of American Communist John Reed. Reds failed to win a Best Picture Academy Award, though Beatty did pick up an Oscar as Best Director. Some of his other works include Ishtar (1984), Dick Tracy (1991), Bugsy (1992) and Bulworth (1998). More research would be required to determine what unique and extraordinary services Beatty was to provide Gershwin-Kastner Productions. Beatty made two films Mickey One (1965) and Bonnie and Clyde in collaboration with Tatiana Productions, but Gershwin-Kastner produced only 2 films, neither of which includes a credited role for Beatty. File holes at upper margin. Staple at upper left corner. Fine condition.
