Lot 2525: DS, two pages, 8 x 12.75, November 1, 1961. Contract between Garland and Larcas Productions, in part: "Concurrently herewith you and we are executing the Employment Agreement pertaining to your services in the motion picture tentatively entitled 'A Child is Waiting'...You have also informed us that you have a commitment to render your services in connection with another motion picture tentatively entitled 'Lonely Stage'...as presently scheduled, your services under the Employment Agreement should be completed on or about April 1." Attractively double-matted and framed with a portrait of Garland to an overall size of 33 x 20.5. In fine condition, with expected document wear. Oversized. A Child Is Waiting, in which Garland played a teacher for institutionalized children, premiered in the beginning of 1963 to mixed reviews and failure at the box office. The other film referenced here, which had been tentatively entitled The Lonely Stage, debuted shortly thereafter as I Could Go On Singing, a title chosen to reflect Garland's role-the last movie she sang in had been A Star Is Born in 1954.
