    A Marlon Brando Golden Globe Award for "On The Waterfront." Columbia, 1954. Made of gold-colored metal on a white marble base, front placard reads "To Marlon Brando / for the / Best Dramatic / Performance / of / 1954 / By An Actor / On The Waterfront / The Hollywood / Foreign / Correspondents / Association;" presented to the actor for his searing portrayal of "Terry Malloy" where he delivered one of the most famous lines in film history: "...I coulda had class. I coulda been a contender. I coulda been somebody instead of a bum which is what I am. Let's face it." (Please note the 'globe' portion is tarnished with most of its luster gone due to age and there are slight scratches on the placard.)
    9" x 3" x 3"

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

    What I most appreciated was how thorough you were when we initially met, how you were conservative in your estimates, not trying to get me to consign by giving false expectations, and then for delivering above and beyond on your commitment to me of a wonderful marketing campaign and a first rate catalog and photos, all of which resulted in a final total price realized that was nicely higher than what you had told me to expect.
