    Marilyn Monroe's Champagne Bill, May 22, 1962. It's a well-known fact that Marilyn Monroe's beverage of choice was 1953 Dom Perignon. Just three days after Monroe's racy delivery of "Happy Birthday, Mr. President" (her last major public appearance), and ten days prior to her own birthday, Monroe ordered a case of Dom from Jurgensen's Gourmet in Beverly Hills. This receipt, from that order, is dated May 22, 1962, and lists the case price ($166.56), Monroe's Brentwood address on Helena Drive, the tax ($6.66), and the total paid ($173.22). A few days later Monroe returned to New York to film the infamous nude pool sequence from Something's Got to Give. In Very Fine condition with red handwriting along the top indicating an a.m. delivery of the champagne and two hole punch marks along top.

    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!
