Lot 975: DS, one page, 8.5 x 14, March 7, 1931. Minimum contract for artists between Lugosi and Fox Film Corporation in which he agrees to "render services as such in the role of Hassen in a photoplay the working title of which is now Walsh #28 'Women of All Nations.'" Signed at the conclusion in fountain pen by Lugosi and countersigned by a producer. In fine condition with expected document wear. Accompanied by a full letter of authenticity from PSA/DNA. Directed by Raoul Walsh, Women of All Nations cast Lugosi as Prince Hassan, who captures Elsa, played by Greta Nissen, for his harem. The film was released just three months after Dracula, making a Lugosi film contract from this year an especially desirable piece.
