    Peter Fonda's Engraved Cartier Cigarette Case from Ralph Fields. In the Fall of 1961, at the age of 22, Peter Fonda made his Broadway debut in the play Blood, Sweat, and Stanley Poole, starring opposite Darrin McGavin, Peg Murray, and John McMartin. In a 1997 interview, the actor later recalled: "I stepped onto the stage of the Morosco Theater in 1961 for a Wednesday matinee of Blood, Sweat and Stanley Poole. I was in front of all the blue-haired ladies who come up from Philadelphia, and I could hear them murmuring: 'He looks like his father.' " This sterling silver Cartier cigarette case was presented to Fonda as a gift from producer Ralph Fields; the inside lid is engraved with the date "Oct. 5, 1961" (the day after the play opened) and "B.S. & S.P.", as well as the inscription: "Peter -- it was mostly you -- Thanks, Ralph". In Very Fine condition with some mild scratches and wear to the inside, and some tarnishing to the outside.
