    Marian Marsh's Personalized Leather Portfolio from 1934. The tan leather portfolio, embossed with Marsh's name in the upper left corner, was last used during her travels abroad in 1934. Included inside are multiple letters of introduction to Marsh addressed to various hotel managers across Europe, as well as an introductory letter addressed to Michael Balcon, head of Ealing Studios, from director Harry Lachman. A partial, annotated script for Marsh's 1934 German film Der Verlorene Sohn (The Prodigal Son) has been stored inside; this trip to Europe must have concluded with the film's production in Germany, as it was released later that year. Also included are multiple handwritten notes and the Cunard sailing list for 1934. The notebook's clasp is in working condition, with the keys still attached inside, and the leather has moderate wear along spine with minor seam splits along lower cover. In overall Very Good condition. From the Marian Marsh Archive. Accompanied by LOA from PSA/DNA.
