Our personal favorite of the original SNL crew, who lost
her life to cancer in 1989. Gilda's 16 page will gives us a real inside
look into this fine lady's life, which we augment with a very detailed
seven page Inventory and Appraisement, as well as Distribution Receipts
(for bequests from the estate) signed by her brother Michael and husband
Gene Wilder. Petition for Probate as well as the death certificate also
included. An excellent file.
Miss Raye spent her last years in a messy conservatorship
involving her last husband (33 years her junior, who she loved deeply)
and her daughter (who Raye stated was only after her money). This 22-page
file contains several signed statements from Miss Raye, her husband Mark
Harris, the daughter Melodye Condos, Raye's doctor, and the judge who finally
granted conservatorship to one of Raye's CPA's.
Everyone's favorite TV mom, bar none, and a fine dramatic
film actress in her day. Miss Reed's will consists of 9 pages, and to this
we add an enlightening 7 page petition by her husband outlining the assets
of her estate. Lastly is a 3 page Spousal Property Order. Death certificate
Miss Remick's generous will is 9 pages in length, and
included are a claim for last illness expense as well as a claim by her
business manager for commissions due. Death certificate included.
Probably best remembered for her portrayal of Florida
Evans on television's GOOD TIMES, plus numerous character roles, Miss Rolle
died in 1998 after a 50 year acting career. This 20 page file consists
of Miss Rolle's 4 page will, the Inventory and Appraisement of her estate,
Letters of and Order For Probate, plus several creditor's claims.
Death certificate also included.
Another customer request that we were finally able to
locate. Miss Russell's will is surprisingly short (3 pages), but we have
also included the single page Order for Probate, the 2 page Inventory and
Appraisement and lastly an interesting 3 page claim against the estate
for an uncompleted book by Miss Russell.
It was her role on GILLIGAN'S ISLAND as "Eunice 'Lovey'
Wentworth Howell" wife of multi-millionaire Thurston Howell III, that Natalie
Schafer will always be remembered for. Her will (loaded with generous bequests),
is 17 pages, plus a hand written, single page codicil that was drafted
the day of her death. Petition for Probate also included.
This star of the 30's and 40's and wife of MGM legend
Thalberg left behind a 6 page will plus a single page affidavit. Also
included is a detailed 5 page Community Property Petition. Another customer
Sheridan became a Paramount contract player at the tender age of 19. Known as
the "Oomph Girl", a nickname she truly hated, she became one of the most
glamorous women in Hollywood, her beauty making her a favorite pin-up girl. Our
personal favorite of her roles was in I WAS A MALE WAR BRIDE, starring with Cary
Grant. When she died in 1967, Miss Sheridan left behind a seven page will to
which we add several other documents from her probate file.
Another of our favorite actresses, Miss Stanwyck's will
consists of 4 simple pages, to which we have added the 2 page Petition
for Probate and single page Order for Probate. Death certificate also included.
Stevens was an up and coming film & TV star until
her suicide in 1970; though she died intestate, we present a substantial
25 page file, including inventories & appraisements, very interesting
claims against the estate, and documents regarding the battle between her
husband and the Public Administrator over the estate. Two page death certificate
Stratten was a Playboy centerfold and the subject of
Bob Fosse's STAR 80. She died of gun shot wounds at the hands of her estranged
husband, before he turned the gun on himself. Though she died intestate,
this is a very intriguing file (23 total pages) including a claim by her
husband's estate, declarations, petitions, objections, inventories, and
finally, death certificates for both parties.
Swanson was one of the great ladies of silent films (and
a mistress to Joseph Kennedy in the twenties), and later resurfaced as
the slightly deranged silent screen star Norma Desmond in the powerful
film SUNSET BOULEVARD. Included in this package are her simple 3 page will
with 2 page codicil, 12 detailed pages outlining the value of her estate,
a 2 page Decree of Divorce from husband William Davey in 1948, and lastly
a copy of the death certificate.
Easily one of our strangest finds. Miss Tate died (intestate)
at the hands of the infamous Manson family in August of 1969. What we present
are 7 pages of letters (one from spouse Roman Polanski to the courts),
petitions, a very macabre claim against the estate, and lastly a copy of
the two-page death certificate. Sharon
Tate's autopsy file can be found elsewhere in our catalogues.
"The Ice Cream Blonde" died in 1935 of carbon monoxide
poisoning, with a Grand Jury split as to whether she committed suicide
or was murdered. Her 1933 will is 2 pages, short and to the point, to which
we add the Petition for Probate, Letters Testamentary, a very detailed
Inventory and Appraisement of her estate, and 4 random creditors claims. The
fascinating Coroner's Inquest (125 pages!) into Miss Todd's untimely demise
can be found elsewhere in our catalogues.
We knew Miss Turner's estate would have to hit probate
sooner or later. Because daughter Cheryl Crane felt she was dealt with
unfairly, being essentially disinherited from Turner's estate, she petitioned
the courts to get a bigger slice of the pie. Carman Cruz, Turner's maid
and companion (and the only other beneficiary of her Trust) doesn't see
it that way. Because of their legal wranglings, the Trust has been thrown
into probate, and thus has become public information. We offer nearly 70
pages which includes the Trust and its three amendments, and incredibly
detailed inventory of assets, as well as the filings by Crane and Cruz.
Turner's death certificate also included.
With the addition of Miss Vance's 4 page will we complete
our I LOVE LUCY collection. Also included are a 3 page Petition for Probate,
single page of Letters Testamentary, and a copy of the death certificate.
Miss Velez was one of Hollywood's strangest and most
famous suicides. She prepared a very thorough 9 page will, but what adds
interest to this file are the 17 pages of petitions, bizarre claims against
the estate, court orders, copies of cancelled checks, appraisal of the
estate and her death certificate. A great file and another customer request.
The sweetheart of 40's American cinema left a fairly
standard 4 page will plus an interesting single (handwritten) page codicil.
Additionally we offer the 3 page Petition for Probate, single page Letters,
Order for Probate, and Inventory and Appraisement, plus a 2 page claim
for funeral expense. Another customer request.
Another favorite. A 12 page will plus an enlightening
4 page petition and a sizable claim against the estate by her companion
at her death.
