Description: [ENTERAINMENT] a 1961 contract signed by Peter Lawford [the actor] of Chrislaw Productions Inc. and Billy Asher [employee]. 11 pages, signed at conclusion by Lawford and Asher. You already know who Peter Lawford is - Bill Asher (1921-2012) was one of the most prolific early television directors, producing or directing over two dozen series. With television in its infancy, Asher introduced the sitcom Our Miss Brooks, which was adapted from a radio show. He began directing I Love Lucy by 1952. In 1964, he produced and directed Bewitched, which starred his then-wife Elizabeth Montgomery. As a result of his early success, Asher was considered an "early wunderkind of TV-land," and is credited in one magazine article for 'inventing' the sitcom. Included here is a carbon copy of another letter plus a copy of a contract with William Asher. VG.
