This document is an agreement between Clark Gable and Lucky Strike Cigarettes; Gable gives them the rights to quote him from a brief six-paragraph summary of his day that includes several references to smoking "Luckies." It reads in part, "…Saratoga is one of the biggest pictures Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer has made…No lunch until 3 o'clock, and then only a quick bite before getting back into the grind. Having smoked between every 'take', I'm on my second pack of Luckies. Even though my throat is about ready to go on strike, it still welcomes a Lucky. I've won a lot of bets that I can tell a Lucky from any other cigarette. But I ought to know after smoking them for 10 years…" Gable was one of the biggest stars of the early sound film era, best-known for his role as Rhett Butler in Gone With the Wind."

    The document is in fine condition; several folds are present; document is mounted onto a cardboard stock backing covered with brown velvet; stable and holes for binding present on the upper edge; lower edge torn and missing small pieces near the corners. Accompanied by LOA from PSA/DNA.

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
