A nice lot of four vintage Hollywood items: a partly-printed D.S. 1p. 4to., California, July 9, 1953, a contract in which DESI ARNAZ, as President of Desilu Productions, Inc., agrees to borrow no more than $50,000.00 at one time from the Bank of America. Boldly signed at bottom, file holes at left margin, light toning to edges, overall very good. Along with JOAN CRAWFORD, T.L.S. 1p. 8vo., [New York], Nov. 30, 1968, to noted Hollywood costume designer Ambrose Du Bek, in part: "...Thank you so much for the beautiful...flowers...As I am sure you know by now, Christina is fine again...". Signed "Ever Joan", with original envelope. Finally, JAMES CAGNEY, a pair of T.L.S. dated 1977 and 1980, sending greetings and other news, likely written to family members. The 1980 letter torn in half, other very good. Four pieces.
