Marlon Brando Items to Be Auctioned



More than 250 items of Marlon Brando will be auctioned June 30, 2005

More than 250 items belong to the legendary actor Marlon Brando, including his annotated script from 1972's "The Godfather" and a letter from the Rev. Martin Luther King Jr., will be put up for bid by Brando's estate on June 30, 2005. Other items include a letter from Mario Puzo and many relate to Brando's interest in American Indians, like a gift of artifacts from Val Kilmer, his co-star in 1996's "The Island of Dr. Moreau."

Also put in the auction is Brando's Oscar nomination certificate for "On the Waterfront" and the black velvet tunic he wore in "Superman" in 1978. The rest of the items are more personal, including numerous musical instruments, boxing gloves and his foosball table. All of those items are removed from Brando's Los Angeles home, where he had lived since 1960. The collection will be open to public viewing on June 24-29 at Christie's in New York and June 7-10 at the auction house's Los Angeles gallery.
