    A Marilyn Monroe Signed Black and White Photograph, Circa 1953. An original print with a glossy finish, depicting the star in one of her well-known cheesecake publicity poses, signed in green fountain pen ink on the center right side "To Dick, / It's a pleasure to work with / you. / Marilyn Monroe" -- 'Dick' being bit-part actor Dick Ryan who worked in Hollywood from the 1940s to the 1980s; consigned directly by Ryan's family. (Please note the inscription is somewhat faded but it looks like the ink was probably running out as MM was signing it.)
