    Description

    "The Godfather" Prop Newspaper. "Vito Corleone Feared Murdered" screams the headline on this faux Daily News tabloid, "dated" December 22, 1945, printed for use as a prop in the 1972 classic, and given as a gift to Brando, who wanted it as a memento. Several such prop newspapers were used onscreen in the film; this particular one was used in the scene where Michael Corleone (Al Pacino) learns his father has been shoot and throws the paper in the street. An extremely rare item, as screen-used Godfather props are virtually nonexistent these days. There are several unrelated photos on the back, and the inside is entirely blank. The paper is in Excellent condition with mild overall tanning. From the collection of Marlon Brando.
