    Marilyn Monroe Picture and Negative. The picture, taken by the legendary Irv Steinberg, shows Marilyn, euphoric after her sexy "Happy Birthday" serenade to JFK at Madison Square Garden, happy and relaxed with Isadore Miller. This was the father of playwright Arthur Miller, Marilyn's third husband - they had divorced the previous year after four-and-half years of marriage. Marilyn was very attentive to Miller that evening, introducing him to Kennedy as "my former father-in-law" and including him at the reception afterwards at the East Side home of Arthur Krim. The picture, which offers wonderful closeup detail of Marilyn's hair (some sources claim she wore a wig that night), ermine wrap, and earring, comes with its original negative and copyright notice. Excellent condition.
