Lot 977: DS, four pages, 8.5 x 13, August 2, 1971. First Artists Production Company, Ltd., agreement concerning compensation due to McQueen, which "shall apply to the Picture tentatively entitled Pocket Money, heretofore produced by Coleytown Productions, Inc." Signed at the conclusion in green felt tip by McQueen and countersigned by three studio executives. In fine condition, with expected document wear. The production company, First Artists, was established by Steve McQueen, Barbra Streisand, Sidney Poitier, Paul Newman, and Dustin Hoffman in order to allow the actors greater creative control. Pocket Money was made by Newman in 1972, and although McQueen did not appear in the film he had a financial interest in it through First Artists. A highly desirable document with excellent cinematic associations.
