Rare document from the final days of Garbo's MGM career

DS, one page, 8.5 x 11, March 12, 1941. Document clarifying Garbo's contract with MGM, in part: "This will confirm our understanding and agreement that our contract with you dated November 20, 1940 shall be and the same is hereby amended by substituting the date 'April 15, 1941' in lieu and instead of 'April 1, 1941' wherever the latter date appears." Signed at the conclusion in fountain pen by Garbo to approve and accept the modification, and countersigned by an assistant treasurer for the studio. In fine condition. Hoping to capitalize on the success of 1939's Ninotchka, Garbo starred in MGM's 1941 movie Two-Faced Woman. The film was a box office bomb, and Garbo's contract was terminated by mutual agreement shortly after its release—she never made another movie.
