Sorry, this item has already been sold.

Highly uncommon one-page contract with Trinity Productions, Inc. for the film The Kid from Brooklyn (1945), signed in heavy pencil.  Gentle surface creases, but, overall, in good condition for its age.  The diminutive comic actor was one of the Keystone Cops, appearing in nearly 350 silent and early talkie comedy shorts.  He was also an important voice actor for both Disney and Warner Brothers, starring in nearly 160 cartoon classics, including Dumbo (1941).  Throughout Hollywood's Golden Age, he was a trusty character actor, with memorable roles in countless westerns and the horror, sci-fi and fantasy films Babes in Toyland (1934), The Lost City (1935), The Wizard of Oz (1939), The Ape (1940), Robot Wrecks (1941), and I Married a Witch (1942).
