Very special Golden Globe won by Frank Sinatra in 1946, not only for its scarcity, but because it was given to Sinatra for his work in promoting anti-Jewish bigotry and racial tolerance, a cause very dear to Sinatra throughout his life. This is Sinatra's first Golden Globe, and also the only major award won by Frank Sinatra ever to appear at auction, given to him for "Promoting International Understanding" for the short film "The House I Live In" that debuted in November 1945. In the film, Sinatra convinces a group of young boys to stop bullying a Jewish boy, telling them, "Do you know what this wonderful country is made of? It's made up of 100 different kinds of people, and 100 different ways of talking, and 100 different ways of going to church. But they're all American ways." Sinatra was the very first recipient of this Golden Globe in the category of Promoting International Understanding, a fitting tribute given Sinatra's long history of advocating for racial and religious equality.

Golden Globe features a sculpture in relief of the Earth encircled by a laurel wreath at its base. Sculpture sits atop a metal base with the plaque engraved, "To FRANK SINATRA / For the Picture With the Best / International Feeling Produced in / 1945 / Hollywood Foreign Correspondents Association". Award measures 6.25" tall and 3.625" in diameter. Some tarnishing and a few small chips, overall in very good condition. Award is accompanied by a 10" x 8" wire photo of Sinatra accepting the Golden Globe from Marina Cisternas, President of the HFCA. One of the scarcest entertainment awards ever to come to auction.
