    Boy On a Dolphin Presentation Statue. Filmed on location in Greece and at Cinecitta Studios in Rome, the romantic comedy Boy On a Dolphin (1957) starred Alan Ladd as an archaeologist seeking to recover the titular ancient statue, Clifton Webb as an art collector who wants to add it to his collection, and Sophia Loren (in her American debut) as an attractive Greek sponge diver caught in the middle. This replica of the statue featured in the film was presented to an unknown recipient for their part in assisting the production. The statue features 10.75" brass figure on a 9.25" x 1.75" x 5.25" marble base bearing a metal plate reading "For your help and enthusiasm and for your understanding of our project. 'Boy on a Dolphin' Company/20th Century Fox Studio. Fall of 1956". In Excellent condition, accompanied by an 11" x 14" lobby card for movie.
