An Employee's Receipt issued by the 20th Century Fox Film Corporation issued to James L. Fecht on the 14th of December 1946. The check was for $5.67 with ¢.70 withheld for social security and ¢ .70 withheld for California State unemployment insurance.
The document is noted as "retroactive 1946". Jobs in the film industry were hard to get in after World War II, but veterans were given priority where possible.
In pencil the address of Glen Barnes, Jimmie's father-in-law, and where Jim and his new wife Joye were living. 4548 Elmer Avenue, in North Hollywood, California. The house and whole neighborhood was demolished to make way for the Ventura Freeway (California 101).
