#5135 - Jim Morrison Signed Document Estimate: $20,000+

Morrison-signed contract relating to the 'Feast of Friends' documentary

DS, signed “J. Morrison,” two pages, 8.5 x 11, November 8, 1968. Contract between Doors Productions Corp. and Frank Lisciandro concerning his "editing services in conjunction with Paulo Ferrara on the film entitled Feast of Friends." The document lists an amended section related to "net profits derived from such distribution, sale or other exploitation of the picture," with a brown felt tip notation affirming the "percentage to be 5%." Signed at the conclusion in blue felt tip by Morrison, and countersigned by Lisciandro. Morrison adds his initials, "JM," to the amended percentage. In fine condition.

The Doors self-produced the documentary Feast of Friends during their 1968 summer tour. Designed by Paul Ferrara and edited by Frank Lisciandro, friends and UCLA classmates of Jim Morrison and Ray Manzarek, the self-produced film includes behind-the-scenes off-stage commentary and concert performances with cinema vérité style. Completed in 1968, the much boot-legged 52-minute documentary was screened at film festivals during Morrison‘s lifetime but did not obtain an official release date until late 2014, some 46 years later. An entirely rare and fascinating document signed by Morrison, whose passion for both surrealist film and theatre seamlessly translated to that of the Doors concert stage.
