Legal documents

Scope and Content

This class is comprised of legal documents generated by RD during his career. These include agreements relating to stage productions, papers relating to RD's production companies, the 1944 version of RD's will, and a separate bundle of papers relating to RD's lengthy dispute with MGM British over films he was contracted to make for them during the war period.


The material is divided into two sub-classes, reflecting the division between the more general legal papers and those papers specifically concerned with the MGM court case.
