    Frank Lloyd Wright Contract With NBC Signed Three Times A fine content typed letter signed three times, "Frank Lloyd Wright" (twice) and "Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation" three pages on National Broadcasting Company, Inc. letterhead, 8.5" x 11", Chicago, November 14, 1952. A letter, or rather a contract, in which Wright accepts terms offered by N.B.C., that Wright "as independent contractor, you shall furnish us your personal service and all script material for an interview of you wherein you shall discuss philosophically matters which you have learned in the course of your life and your views concerning them for recording by a sound-on-film motion picture, to be produced by and for us, with an exhibition running time of approximately 25-30 minutes..." Wright agrees to this for a fee of $1,000. We believe that this interview was conducted by Hugh Downs on a program entitled Wisdom with Hugh Downs. An important and historic document. Apart from a file hole and staple at top left, this wonderful piece is in excellent condition. Accompanied by COA from PSA/DNA.

    The pre and post sales experience was wonderful and flawless. Heritage has the best in-house operation I have ever seen and their people are not only professional but fun to work with, especially Steve C.

    As for Heritage's online system… Yes the interface is more complex than what we are used to with SAN but what is behind that interface is amazing for sellers and buyers alike. It is real time and for a real serious auction buyer there is nothing better in the auction industry, bar none.
