    Description

    A Marilyn Monroe Set of Documents Related to "The Prince and the Showgirl." Warner Bros., 1957. The first a one-page note typed on 'Marilyn Monroe Production, Inc.' letterhead, dated "2 July 1956," to "Messrs. L.O.P.," reading in part "...we make / available the services of Miss Marilyn Monroe to you" and further noting that Milton Greene's credit needed to be "Executive Producer," sadly, a detail that would contribute to the end of MM's professional and personal relationship with him; the second a two-page telegram dictation typed on white paper, undated but likely early 1957, from Monroe to "Jack W. / WB Stu / Burbank, Cal" outlining a number of legitimate complaints the star had about the poor editing of the film including her funny mention of "coronation is as long as / before if not longer and story gets lost in it stop American / audiences are not as moved by stained glass windows as British / are and we threaten them with boredom stop" among other like insights; had Jack Warner taken Monroe's suggestions seriously, it would have been a much better film.

    The movie quite literally changed my life. I have included a pic of me in Sly's Rocky 3 Cashmere overcoat, would much appreciate if it is possible for you to forward this email to Sly to let him know the overcoat is in good hands, and will be well taken care of, (as will be the Rambo knife forging tools, the other lot I won!) Wish you very happy holidays and a great 2016!
