    Description

    Marilyn Monroe Picture and Negative. Jack Benny was the host of the Madison Square Garden birthday celebration for JFK in 1962, and this picture captures a backstage moment between Benny and a smiling Marilyn, still glowing after her sultry serenade of the dashing young President. Marilyn had only months left to live; the venerable Benny lived until 1974, reaching the age of 80 (well past the 39 he comically admitted!). This superb candid shot of two legends on a historic night comes with its original negative and its copyright. In Excellent condition.
