A guarantee typically refers to a promise or assurance made by one party to another, ensuring that a specific outcome or result will be achieved, or a particular obligation will be fulfilled. It serves as a form of protection or security to the recipient, assuring them that they will not suffer any loss or harm. Guarantees can be given in various contexts, such as financial transactions, product quality, performance of services, or meeting contractual obligations.
in law and common usage: A promise to answer for the payment of some debt, or the performance of some duty, in case of the failure of another person, who is, in the first instance, liable to such payment or performance; an engagement which secures or insures another against a contingency; a warranty; a security.

Etymology: [From Guarantee, n.]
In filmmaking, a guarantee is a term of an actor or director's contract that guarantees remuneration if, through no fault of their own, the artist is released from the contract. Such an arrangement is known informally as a “play-or-pay” contract. Many stars insist on guarantees in their contract due to the major time commitment agreeing to appear in a film can mean. For example, Kurt Russell's decision to appear in the film Soldier, for which he was paid $15 million, was a total commitment of 18 months, during which time he was not able to appear in another film. If the film were cancelled, or if he were replaced, Russell would be paid $15 million, or a large part of that fee, to compensate him for clearing his schedule. Studios are reluctant to agree to guarantees but accept them as part of the deal for signing major talent. They also have the advantage of enabling a studio to simply remove a player under such a contract with few legal complications.
