    A Marlon Brando Signed Menu, Circa 1950s. From Islander, the famous Tiki-themed restaurant formerly located at 385 North La Cienega Boulevard in Los Angeles, signed in blue ballpoint ink on the inside left side "Regards, / Marlon Brando," further handwritten annotations about a cashmere sweater set appear on the back but do not affect the signature.
    7" x 5 1/2"

    The current owner was a waitress at this restaurant when Brando came in with "one of his exotic beauties" as she recalled; she further noted that Brando didn't really want to sign this menu for her, but he did probably so that he wouldn't look like a jerk in front of his date.
