This lot has closed

Estimate: $1500+


Vintage glossy 8 x 10 studio portrait of Brando in his prime, signed and inscribed in black ink, "To Sondra, Marlon Brando." In very good to fine condition, with a small scratch under Brando's lower lip, and the inscription traced over at some point by the recipient. Accompanied by a vintage glossy 5 x 3.5 photo of Brando in his car, taken at the time of signing.

Accompanied by a copy of a letter of provenance from the original recipient, Sondra McLean, who as a teenager traveled by train from her hometown in Canada to Los Angeles, California, where she spent two-month-long vacations in the summers of 1954, 1955, and 1956. While staying with her cousin, whose residence was within walking distance from MGM Studios, McLean used the majority of her weekdays staking out the studio parking lot for the arrival and departure of Hollywood celebrities.
