Marlon Brando's contact book up for auction

Jan 22, 2014 | 5:19am EST

Legendary actor Marlon Brando's star-studded address book is expected to fetch thousands of dollars in an online auction. The file contains the contact details of A-list stars including actor Johnny Depp and directors Francis Ford Coppola and Oliver Stone. It has gone on sale via the RR Auction website and had attracted a top bid of $360 (£225) on Wednesday (22Jan14). Bobby Livingston, vice president of RR Auction, says, "Fantastic associations abound within this book - it is essentially a microcosm of Brando's entire life and career, with early entries like director Elia Kazan representing his early Oscar-winning role in On the Waterfront, and director Francis Ford Coppola symbolising his later classics like The Godfather and Apocalypse Now." Other items in the auction include a personal copy of Paul Newman's screenplay for Oscar-winning classic The Sting, paintings of Charlton Heston in The Ten Commandments, and a costume worn by actor Dean Cain in the TV series Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman. Newman's script, which includes the actor's handwritten notes on the role, had a top bid of $5,069 (£3,168) on Wednesday.
