DescriptionA Marilyn Monroe Signed Black and White Rare Photograph, Circa 1953. An original print with a glossy finish, depicting what appears to be an outtake of a more famous publicity shot of the star wearing a black off-the-shoulder dress and a somewhat odd expression on her face (though she still looks beautiful), signed in blue fountain pen ink in the center "To Lou, / When you come back- / come around / Marilyn Monroe;" 'Lou' being Lou Benjamin, a young extra who was in one of the star's films. (Please note there are some crease marks on the right side but the autograph and main image are not affected; there are pin holes in all corners; there is slight paper loss to the white border on the upper right corner.)
10" x 8"
This piece was consigned directly to Heritage Auctions by Lou's son.
