    Description

    A Marilyn Monroe Signed Black and White Photograph, Circa 1955. An original print with a matte finish, an enlarged snapshot showing the smiling star, signed in blue fountain pen ink on the right side "Love & Kisses / Marilyn Monroe;" from the personal collection of James Collins, one of the 'Monroe Six' -- the group of young kids who followed Marilyn around NYC so often that the star ended up knowing them all by name and allowing them special access to her (like letting them take countless pictures and giving them numerous autographs); also included with an identical photograph but not signed. (Please note the ink is slightly faded but still legible and there are a number of creases throughout which somewhat detract from the image.)
    7" x 5"
