    Marilyn Monroe Signed Movie Contract (1959). A very significant six-page contract between Marilyn Monroe and Marilyn Monroe Productions, dated April 1, 1959, and signed on page five by Monroe in blue ink, as well as by noted entertainment attorney Robert H. Montgomery. The contract agrees to employ Monroe as its chief financial officer and as a star performer, with a salary of $75,000 for the first year and $104,000 for each subsequent year. The contract was signed just two days after the release of Some Like it Hot, arguably Monroe's finest film, and it was under the terms of this agreement that she appeared in Let's Make Love, The Misfits, and the never-completed and aptly titled Something's Got to Give. (She was fired from said production for erratic attendance less than two months before her untimely death.) The document is in Very Fine to Excellent condition with mild tanning, staple holes to the upper left, and punch holes along the left edge from being housed in a legal binder. Accompanied by a COA from PSA/DNA.Accompanied by LOA from PSA/DNA.
