Hands-down one our most requested files, along with that
Eddy. We present Miss MacDonald's 17-page will (loaded with pages of
specific bequests), a 3-page codicil and 2 pages of funeral information.
This fine character actress was certainly best known
for her portrayal of MA KETTLE in the Universal series of classic comedies.
Miss Main left a four page will and two handwritten codicils (leaving much
of her estate to Pepperdine University) to which we've added a very detailed
inventory and Appraisement of her estate.
Miss Mansfield died intestate (without a will). Included
are 6 pages of petitions as well as other materials, including a copy of
the death certificate.
Best known for her portrayal of Mammy in GONE WITH THE
WIND, Miss McDaniel left a 13 page will which is loaded with bequests and
is very specific in the details pertaining to her requested funeral. An
interesting note in her will is the mention of her race, and her concern
over the problems it might cause in her selection of cemeteries. Two pages
of funeral info and death certificate included.
Alice Kramden of HONEYMOONERS fame, what we offer are
15 pages pertaining to the Audrey Meadows Trust (because of the Trust,
the will was not probated). These documents establish the fact that the
trust was established in such a hurry (as Meadows was "mortally ill") that
the trust, per se`, may actually not exist. Four interesting pages of the
trust, including signatures, are included.
The fabulous Miss Merman left a fairly standard 10 page
will to which we have added a two page partial cash inventory of her estate,
a single page of funeral expenses, a single page of Testamentary Letters
and a copy of the death certificate.
MILES MINTNER $15.00
Miss Mintner was a great beauty of the silent screen
era whose popularity actually rivaled that of Mary Pickford. Included in
this interesting file are two short wills (one handwritten), four Petitions
for Probate, a petition contesting the will(s), pages and pages of claims
and rejections, and a four page Inventory and Appraisement. This 31 page
file also includes the death certificate.
Miss Miranda may have died intestate, but we think that
you will find what we offer here extremely interesting. This package includes
a single page Petition for Letters of Administration, a detailed 4 page
Inventory and Appraisement of the estate, and
single page Final Discharge. Most enlightening are the 10 pages of funeral
info which includes undertaking costs and a claim and contract involving
her mausoleum and a statue of Miss Miranda to be erected in Rio de Janeiro.
Lastly is a claim by a Hollywood boot maker regarding her memorable platform
shoes, and a copy of the death certificate. An excellent package.
MONROE - WILL $20.00
Now containing 45 pages of fascinating materials, and
a great find for any film buff. Three page will (plus a 5 page attorney's
transcription of the will), a very interesting closing statement from her
doctor/psychiatrist as well as a few agents' contracts signed by Miss Monroe;
Recent additions include an 11 page private appraisal of Monroe's belongings
and to whom they were sold, 2 page Inventory and Appraisement, 3 page Order
Confirming Sale (of personal property) 8 pages of creditor's claims (doctors,
photographers, hair stylists, etc.), copies of the Interlocutory &
Final Judgments in her divorce from Joe DiMaggio, and lastly a copy of
the death certificate. (See the Lee
Strasburg documents for more Monroe info). The Monroe
autopsy report appears in our Odds & Ends Catalogue. We have also
just added the
divorce file for Marilyn Monroe and James Dougherty from 1946.
It goes without saying that Miss Montgomery bewitched
us all. Her 18-page will is somewhat cut and dry, primarily discussing
her family trust. To this we add a three page Inventory and Appraisement
showing the value of her estate, 7 pages including the Petition for Probate,
and finally, the death certificate.
Another great character actress, and later a co-star
on TV's BEWITCHED. Lengthy and detailed 18 page will, a single page Letter
of Testamentary and 4 pages of funeral information. Death certificate included.
MAE MURRAY $10.00
It’s been a
long-held belief that May Murray, in her declining years, was the inspiration
for the Norma Desmond character in Billy Wilder’s SUNSET BLVD., though Wilder
never confirmed it. What we offer is a 12 page probate file outlining Murray’s
minimal (valued at less than $500) possessions, turned over to the State of
California Public Administrator after her death and eventually sold at auction.
A little IMDB trivia: Rudolph Valentino was best man at
her 1926 marriage to Prince David Mdivani, and Pola Negri was matron of honor.
The multi-talented state, screen, radio and vaudeville
actress died of an overdose of sleeping pills in 1955. She left a simple
3 page will (we supply the attorney's copy which does not bear her signature),
plus the 3 page inventory and valuation of her estate.
Silent screen actress, and at one time Mack
Sennett's girlfriend, Miss Normand died in 1930 at the age of 35, and
left behind a simple, single page will. What makes this file so worthwhile
are the 9 pages of creditors claims (includes funeral info), the Petition
for Probate, distribution reports, tax appraisals, and the death certificate,
for a total of 26 pages.
MAY OLIVER $15.00
She had a face that could stop most clocks, but was a
favorite comedic character actress in her day. Her 1940 will is 7 bequest-laden
pages, to which we add an extremely detailed 13 page Inventory and Appraisement
of her estate, 4 pages of funeral information plus the Letters Testamentary
& Letters of Administration.
Miss Pickford, surely best known as "America's Sweetheart"
was also a founding member of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts &
Sciences, as well as United Artists, along with Douglas Fairbanks and Charlie
Chaplin. Her very detailed will is 30 pages, to which we add 5 (!) codicils
totaling an additional 19 pages. Death certificate also included.
In our opinion, one of the unsung first ladies of film.
Four page will, 2 page Petition for Probate, 3 page Inventory and Appraisement,
and lastly a copy of Miss Powell's death certificate.
