Howard Hughes contract for the Technicolor ‘A Bullet Is Waiting’

DS, signed “Howard R. Hughes,” one page, 8.5 x 11, December 30, 1954. Agreement between Welsch Productions and the Technicolor Motion Picture Corp. Laboratory concerning the terms and rights to “that certain motion picture entitled ‘A Bullet Is Waiting,’ including all negatives, lavendars, fine grain positives, sound tracks, all positive copies, and any and every property, right, and thing of value connected with said picture.” Nicely signed at the conclusion in fountain pen by Hughes as the lender and countersigned by producer Howard Welsch. Stapled into its original blue paper folder. In fine condition, with expected document wear, a couple rust stains near the top, and toning to edges. Directed by John Farrow, the film starred Rory Calhoun and Jean Simmons in a story about an obsessed lawman on the trail of a wanted killer. Although it was largely panned by the critics, the New York Times did note that the ‘Farrow’s Technicolor cameras have captured ruggedly beautiful scenic backgrounds’—a nice point in relation to this document. Pre-certified PSA/DNA.
