Contract for the “dramatization of my novel ‘The Glass Key’”
Description                           Estimate: $1,000+          

DS, one page, 8.5 x 11, November 24, 1931. Scarce document sent to Edward Choate from Hammett concerning the royalties terms for the “dramatization of my novel ‘The Glass Key.’” Neatly signed at the conclusion by Hammett. In fine condition. Considered one of Hammett’s best novels, The Glass Key was adapted to the silver screen twice—once in 1935 and again in 1942. It was also an important work in the hardboiled genre, influencing writers and filmmakers alike. Pre-certified PSA/DNA.
