    Chet Baker Personal Address Books, Original Signed Contract, And Film Memorabilia Here are two address books owned and used by Chet Baker which likely date to the last years of his life. Among the addresses and phone numbers - the majority of which are European - there are many other notations- travel information, personal reminders, a set list, mathematical computations, etc. Together the books provide a fascinating peek into the daily life of the iconic musician. Included is also an undated original contract between photographer Bruce Weber and Baker, for the use of a Baker recording in Weber's film Broken Noses. The film was released in 1987, one year before Weber's Academy Award-nominated documentary on Baker, Let's Get Lost. The contract is boldly signed by both Baker and Weber in black felt tip. Also included are promotional postcards from films about Baker and the 1989 Film Forum flyer which announces the US premiere of Let's Get Lost. All items in Very Good condition. From the Collection of Diane Vavra.
