Lot Essay

This contract, and that in the following lot, date from an interesting time in Sinatra's career. In 1952, MCA Artists Agency had refused to renew their contract with Sinatra as his career was somewhat in decline. William Morris Agency initailly agreed to sign him up for one year. Following a highly successful year in 1952 - 1953, with Sinatra signing a new record deal with Capitol and playing the part of Maggio in From Here To Eternity, William Morris were keen for Sinatra's next contract with them to be for a longer term of three years.
