    A Marlon Brando Name Plate from His Dressing Room, Circa 1971. Made of wood, painted in white on front side "Mr. Brando;" previous paint job on back side faintly reads "Mr. Whore;" small holes on either side to affix to door; included with a Letter of Provenance from Alice Marchak, Brando's longtime assistant.
    2" x 11"

    According to Marchak, this piece was on Brando's dressing room door at the Filmways Pictures offices in NYC when he was making "The Godfather" but he took it down immediately because he didn't want anyone to call him "Mr." Brando. It seems likely that the "Mr. Whore" on the back side was meant for the previous tenant of that dressing room!
