DS, one page, 8.5 x 11, Law Offices of Laurence W. Beilenson letterhead, March 11, 1935. Document submitted to Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, in full: "In consideration of your having postponed the starting date of 'Anna Karenina' from March 11th to March 18th, at my request, it is agreed that wherever the date 'May 15, 1935' is used in the contract between us, dated October 22, 1934, said date shall be changed to read 'May 22, 1935.'" Boldly signed at the conclusion in fountain pen by Garbo. In fine condition.

Having once played Anna Karenina in the 1927 film "Love," Garbo reprised the role in MGM's lavish 1935 adaptation of the classic Tolstoy novel. The film opened at New York's Capitol Theatre on August 30, 1935, and Garbo's powerful acting earned wide praise; Graham Greene noted that 'it is Greta Garbo's personality which 'makes' this film, which fills the mould of the neat respectful adaptation with some kind of sense of the greatness of the novel.' Garbo's portrayal of Anna Karenina remains one of her most acclaimed and memorable roles.
