MARLON BRANDO'S CONTACT BOOK UP FOR AUCTION

Wednesday, January 22, 2014 - Legendary actor Marlon Brando 's star-studded address book is expected to fetch thousands of dollars in an online auction.

The file contains the contact details of A-list stars including actor Johnny Depp and directors Francis Ford Coppola and Oliver Stone.

It has gone on sale via the Rr Auction website and had attracted a top bid of $360 (=C2£225) on Wednesday (22Jan14).

Bobby Livingston, vice president of Rr Auction, says, "Fantastic associations abound within this book - it is essentially a microcosm of Brando's entire life and career, with early entries like director Elia Kazan representing his early Oscar-winning role in On the Waterfront, and director Francis

Ford Coppola symbolising his later classics like The Godfather and Apocalypse Now."

Other items in the auction include a personal copy of Paul Newman's screenplay for Oscar-winning classic The Sting, paintings of Charlton Heston in The Ten Commandments, and a costume worn by actor Dean Cain in the TV series Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman.

Newman's script, which includes the actor's handwritten notes on the role, had a top bid of $5,069 (=C2£3,168) on Wednesday.
