MARLON BRANDO
Academy Award-winning actor Marlon Brando signed this fax in 2000, one year before his final movie appearance, to appoint an attorney to transact an application with the U. S. Patent and Trademark Office, probably for a patent on a drumhead tensioning device that he received in 2004.
Document signed "Marlon Brando" in black ink. Dealer's label on verso. 1 page, 8¼x11¼. Fax dated July 10, 2000. From the United States Patent and Trademark Office in Washington, D. C. Brando signed this fax to appoint Roger Sherman, Esq. of Mitchell, Silberberg & Knupp in Los Angeles, California "to transact this application, to transact all business in the Patent and Trademark Office in connection therewith, and to receive the certificate of registration on behalf of Marlon Brando." This document is probably in connection with a drumhead tensioning device that he patented on Nov. 2, 2004. He received U. S. patent no. 6,812,392 for this device. Brando signed this at the end of a long and tumultuous acting career and a year before his final movie, the 2001 crime caper The Score. Brando (1924-2004, born Marlon Brando, Jr. in Omaha, Nebraska) was nominated for the 1989 Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor (A Dry White Season) and for seven Academy Awards for Best Actor: 1951 (A Streetcar Named Desire), 1952 (Viva Zapata!), 1953 (Julius Caesar), 1954 (On the Waterfront), 1957 (Sayonara), 1972 (The Godfather) and 1973 (Last Tango in Paris); he won in 1954 and 1972. He refused to accept the award for the title role in The Godfather because he believed that the United States and Hollywood were discriminating against the Indian people. Lightly toned and creased. Document text, but not signature, is lightly faded. Discolored at top edge and in bottom left corner. Staple holes in upper left corner. Show-through from verso on front (does not touch signature). Lightly rounded corners. Otherwise in fine condition.
