Description

    Peter Lawford Signed Phone Book. A handsome burgundy 17" x 10" leather Cartier address book with 18 karat gold tips and Lawford's name embossed on the cover in gold lettering. A fascinating peak into Lawford's life at the time, the book contains scores of contacts for the actor known in Hollywood as "the man who kept the secrets." The book includes typed and handwritten numbers for such celebrities as Truman Capote, Bill Cosby, Doris Day, Mama Cass, Henry Ford, Hugh Hefner, Mick Jagger, Paul Newman, Michelle Phillips, Don Rickles, Ringo Starr, Raquel Welch, and many, many more. Also included are fellow Rat Packers Sammy Davis Jr., Shirley MacLaine, and Joey Bishop (Frank Sinatra is oddly not present, but Tina Sinatra is). Kennedy relatives are there, too, including Princess Lee Radziwill and Jackie Kennedy (with both her New York and Newport numbers). Additional sections in the book are present for florists, airlines, doctors, studios, restaurants, etc. Even the infamous club owner / drug dealer, John T. McClain is listed -- Lawford actually testified as a character witness at McClain's trial for narcotics charges. The book also contains many business cards and receipts. Some very minor scuffing and some of the numbers have been redacted; otherwise, it is in Very Fine condition. A compelling item from the ultimate Hollywood insider.
