Aaa_66 Up for aution on eBay this week is one of the original contracts by which Jules "Nicky Arnstein" Arnold assigned the rights to his unpublished autobiography to his children Frances Brice Stark, and William Brice.  Arnstein, a professional gambler who turned to crime and did stretches at Leavenworth and Sing Sing, was married to radio star Fanny Brice.

Frances Stark happened to be married to Hollywood producer Ray Stark, and the work would later become Funny Girl.
