A Freddie Bartholomew contract for Little Lord Fauntleroy
Typed Document Signed ("David O. Selznick," "LB Mayer"), 6 pp, dated November 5, 1935, between Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Corp. and Selznick International Pictures, Inc., a loan-out agreement allowing Selznick the use of Bartholomew's services for the film, Little Lord Fauntleroy (1936), on MGM letterhead. In addition to clauses covering salaries, wardrobe, travel, tutors, and billing for the young actor, the contract also discusses a previous arrangement involving Selznick's loan-out to MGM of director George Cukor's services for MGM's production of Camille (1936) starring Greta Garbo, under the supervision of Mayer's right-hand man, Irving Thalberg. An original document signed by both Mayer and his son-in-law, Selznick, is a rare find and a unique chapter in the early history of Selznick International Pictures.
