    Description

    Marlon Brando Signed Fan Letter. This unique item is a letter from a fan that was passed along to Brando, with his immediate response and signature written on the reverse. Written on a scrap of notebook paper in 1972 (shortly after his infamous Academy Award refusal) by a passenger sharing a flight with him, it reads "Mr. Brando, I deeply admire your public committment [sic] to Civil Rights. Your example is good for us 'not so famous' to follow." Brando wrote his response, "Thank you for your kind remarks. All good wishes" and signed it in black felt tip. The note is in Fine to Very Fine condition with a fold crease, mild wear, and some toning. Accompanied by James Spence Authentication auction LOA.
