TLS: "Montgomery Clift", 2p, 8½x11, separate sheets. New York, 1961 January 31. A letter from Roxlom Films to Clift, headed "Re: 'Judgement at Nuremberg'", which he has signed on the second page at lower left under the words: "Accepted and Agreed to". Clift is notified by Roxlom Films "that insofar as United States and State income taxes are concerned, that, because we are not compensating you by payment of salary, such taxing authorities may take the position that the living expenses and transportation which we have paid for you under the employment agreement should be considered as income or gratuities because they do not relate to the production of income for you...we will pay to you the difference between the amount of income tax which you would have had to pay had such expense payments not been a part of your taxable income and the amount of income tax which you may be required to pay by including such expenses or any part thereof as income taxable to you...." Montgomery Clift (1920-1966) was nominated for the 1961 Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor for his role as witness Rudolph Peterson in Judgment at Nuremberg. He had been nominated for Academy Awards for Best Actor in 1948 (The Search), 1951 (A Place in the Sun) and 1953 (From Here to Eternity). 2 file holes at top blank margin, staple holes at blank left corner. Creased top blank margin.
Documento con fecha del 31 de julio de 1961 (y firmado por Montgomery Clift el 8 de febrero) que estipula el contrato del actor para realizar Judgment at Nuremberg. Cabe recordar que Monty no cobró por hacer ese papel. Fue una decisión suya puesto que prefirió hacer el pequeño rol del judío discapacitado al rol protagonista de fiscal.
