Lengthy United Artists agreement for Abbott and Costello’s last movie

DS, signed “Bud Abbott” and “Lou Costello,” 43 pages, 8.5 x 14, July 10, 1956. Lengthy distribution agreement between the two comedians and United Artists Corporation for their 1956 film Dance with Me, Henry. Signed at the conclusion by Abbott and Costello, their wives, “Jennie Mae Abbott" and "Anne Costello,” and a United Artists representative. Also initialed on two pages by the pair, “B. A.” and “L. C.,” to approve emendations to the terms of the contract. In very good condition, with toned tape repairs to the first page and expected document wear. Accompanied by original promotional material for the film, including a 14 x 36 insert movie poster, a 14 x 11 lobby card, and a glossy 10 x 8 publicity still. This contract represents the last film that Abbott and Costello starred in together, marking the end of a prolific 16-year career during which they made 36 films. An exquisite piece from the last days of Hollywood’s legendary comedy collaborators. Pre-certified PSA/DNA.
