DS, one page, 8.5 x 11, June 12, 1939. Document submitted to Loew's Incorporated, in part: "I agree, with respect to the results and proceeds of my services in your photoplay now entitled 'The Wizard of Oz' that...you…shall have the right…perpetually and without limit as to time, to use my name, photograph, likeness and/or the reproduction of my voice and sound effects in connection with any advertising and/or commercial tie-ups and/or for any other commercial purposes provided that such tie-ups or commercial uses refer to said photoplay now entitled 'The Wizard of Oz' and/or include the use of scenes or reproductions of scenes from said photoplay and/or representations of the character portrayed by me in said photoplay." Neatly signed at the conclusion in fountain pen by the 17-year-old Judy Garland, and countersigned by her mother, "Mrs. Ethel M. Garland." In fine condition, with light intersecting folds.

This important document dates to two months before the official release of "The Wizard of Oz," which made its Hollywood premiere at Grauman's Chinese Theatre on August 15, 1939. Garland's iconic portrayal of Dorothy Gale stands as one of the most famous and beloved roles in the history of cinema. A remarkable and supremely desirable document associated with the marketing and commercialization of this truly classic film.
