Comments

Ann Savage's signed contract with Poverty Row studio Producers Releasing Corporation [PRC] to star in the cornerstone 1945 film noir 'Detour.' A seminal document from a film for which ephemera of any kind is virtually unobtainable, showing that Savage was hired for three weeks to do the film (which is reportedly how long it took to shoot), that her character would be named Vera, that she would receive top billing for the female role, her address in Los Angeles, and her pay rate ($700 per week). All specific information added in manual type, initialed in several places, and rubber stamped 'PRC PRODUCTIONS' just above Savage's signature. A remarkable survival. National Film Registry. Grant, p.180. Hardy, The BFI Companion to Crime, pp.103-104. Selby Masterwork, p.41. Silver, pp.97-98. Spicer, p.73.
