    Clifton Webb's Personal Address Book and Passport. If you're like me, you have most of your important phone numbers stored in your cellphone or on your laptop, but back in the "old days" people used address books. This lot contains such an item -- a 1944-dated loose-leaf address book that belonged to Clifton Webb. My most important contacts include my wife, my boss, a few friends, the pizza place near my house, the pizza place near the office, etc. Webb's included a lot of folks that most all of us have heard of: Dana Andrews, Jack Benny, Humphrey Bogart, Joan Crawford, Marlene Dietrich, Sam Goldwyn, Lillian Gish, Paulette Goddard, Kate Hepburn, Cole Porter, Otto Preminger, Mary Pickford, Basil Rathbone, David Selznick, Jack Warner, and Darryl Zanuck (to name just a few).

    Also in this lot is a United States passport dated February 2, 1935 with the usual signed passport photo and stamps from trips to France and the U.K. With COA from PSA/DNA.
