Signed Contract for Erich von Stroheim's first film as a director, "Blind Husbands"

Universal City, CA: Universal Pictures, 1919. Film contract between Universal Pictures and Erich von Stroheim, agreeing to purchase of his story, "The Pinnacle." SIGNED by von Stroheim and dated April 14, 1919; also signed and sealed by a notary. In the same year, von Stroheim would go on to film the story as "Blind Husbands," his first of four efforts as a writer/director for the studio. "Blind Husbands" shows unusual restraint for von Stroheim, who would go on to be famous for excess with his first MGM film, "Greed" (1924). Near Fine with a couple of small tears and lightly torn hole punches at the top edge. An extremely important cinematic document, signaling the entrance of a major writer/director into the Hollywood, one whose work would have a profound influence on the many cinematic auteurs that would follow.
