Twentieth Century Fox has emptied out its vaults and placed about 200 documents from Hollywood's Golden Era up for auction.
Among the documents are Bogart's first studio contract from 1930, and a 1946 letter that changed Norma Jean Dougherty's name to Marilyn Monroe.
The vaults also include papers related to Elvis, Judy Garland and Rita Hayworth. Taken together, they represent one of the richest troves of Hollywood memorabilia ever to be offered for auction.
