    Marilyn Monroe Letter from 20th Century-Fox Regarding "Wild River." Featured is an important carbon typewritten letter signed by the executive manager of 20th Century-Fox Film to Marilyn Monroe Productions, Inc. The letter states Monroe is to report to the studio on April 14, 1959, to commence the filming of Time and Tide, to be directed by Elia Kazan. The film was released as Wild River in 1960, but did not feature Monroe, who had been replaced by Lee Remick. (Ironically, Remick was later hired by 20th Century-Fox to replace the fired Marilyn in Something's Got to Give.) The one-page carbon letter is 8.5" x 11".

    Accompanying the letter is a "Marilyn Monroe Drawing Aid" in its original 9" x 6" envelope. This transparent plastic silhouette of a nude Marilyn is imprinted in red: "Marilyn Monroe Drawing Aid. Every Curve Of Marilyn's Beautiful Body Represents A Different Directional Change Of Angle. Aligns with Straight Edge. 4 Point Contact Copyright 1956 NMMM." Both items are in Excellent condition. Accompanied by a COA from John Reznikoff, PSA/DNA.

    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!
