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.

    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!
