A Marilyn Monroe Never-Before-Seen Black and White Snapshot, 1955. An original print with a glossy finish, depicting the star talking to a man, black fountain pen ink annotation handwritten on verso reads "Marilyn Monroe - / Fred Robbins - NYC - WABC Radio Personality / 1955," stamp below that further reads "Photo by / Jess Rand" [a longtime Hollywood press agent and personal manager from the late 1940s to the 1990s]; included are three later prints from the 2000s from same event (likely a birthday party for Sammy Davis, Jr. at his home): one depicts the star next to Tony Curtis as they both hold food in their hands, another is a blow-up of that same image of MM and TC, and the third is of TC, MM, a cute terrier (probably Sammy's dog), Milton Greene, and Fred Robbins; from The Estate of Jess Rand.
