TODAY’S AUCTION FEATURES

Lots 935-1589


An astonishing collection containing mystery, intrigue, controversy and fact from the heir of Hollywood mogul Milton Ebbins, manager, business partner and close friend of actor Peter Lawford, John F. Kennedy’s brother-in-law. The collection includes the records of Chrislaw Productions, all of which were given to “Milt” after the company was dissolved and were held hidden in storage for over four decades. The contents of these files illustrate the link between the Kennedys and the inner circles of Hollywood during the golden age of Camelot, and reveal how for the first time in history, a candidate utilized Hollywood’s influence on the American public to win a Presidential election. A sequence of lots include correspondence, notes and other items documenting how Frank Sinatra and Peter Lawford spearheaded the planning of President Kennedy’s Inaugural Gala. One lot includes Peter Lawford’s own original speech introducing Marilyn Monroe at Kennedy’s 45th birthday party, where Milton Ebbins could also be seen running offstage after pushing her onstage as she went out to sing her sultry version of “Happy Birthday”. The items up for sale from this collection reveal behind-the-scenes views of Tinsel Town in the 1960s including party plans and guest lists, movie scripts including the original Ocean’s Eleven scripts, casting notes, the ransom note from the kidnapping of Frank Sinatra’s son Frank Jr., private phone logs and more related to the many of the Kennedys, the The Rat Pack: Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Peter Lawford, Sammy Davis Jr. and Joey Bishop; Marilyn Monroe and her death, Patty Duke, Jerry Lewis, Bing Crosby, Mort Sahl, Rosemary Clooney, Elizabeth Montgomery, Count Basie, Billy Eckstine, Nat King Cole, Marlon Brando and many, many more.
