Borrowing a copy of Jailhouse Rock

Dutch-born impresario (1909–1997), né Andreas Corneliius van Kuijk, who, as Elvis’ manager, maintained a Svengali-like grip on the singer’s career. His complete oversight was indisputably one of the driving forces behind Elvis’ success, though whether his influence was in the end a boon or a detriment remains a hotly debated topic. DS, signed “Col. Thomas A. Parker,” two pages, 8.5 x 11, MGM letterhead, June 30, 1960. An agreement for the loan to Parker of a 16mm print of the film Jailhouse Rock. Staple holes and mild handling wear, otherwise fine condition. R&R COA.
