    Description

    A Marlon Brando Golden Globe Award for 'World Film Favorite,' 1955. Made of gold-colored metal on a white marble base, front placard reads "To Marlon Brando / The World / Film Favorite / of / 1955 / Hollywood / Foreign Press / Assn.;" interestingly, that year Brando made the musical "Guys and Dolls" co-starring Frank Sinatra, a major departure from his typical gritty and serious roles. (Please note the small 'Henrietta' figurine atop the globe shows repair work and there are substantial scratches on the placard.)
    9" x 3" x 3"

    According to Alice Marchak [Brando's longtime personal assistant], Brando threw this award against the wall, breaking off the top figurine, and it was not fixed until decades later.

    Included with a "Letter of Authenticity" signed by Alice Marchak, Marlon Brando's longtime personal assistant.
