Product Description

A truly incredible array of items that belonged to one of the greatest icons of the 20th Century, Marilyn Monroe.

The lot includes her black swimming costume as supplied by 20th Century Fox (ink marked on the inside with her name and reference number 19576701. The maker's date has been removed (only the 'The" remains). The other label has "Made in the USA, content: acetate cotton rubber." The condition is very good, but it has lost one of its shoulder strap buckles.

The lot also has three items of jewellery, two rings and an ankle bracelet. The rings comprise of a heavy rose flower and a knotted wire, both are costume jewellery and the latter has some damage. There is also a small identity bracelet which has 'Marilyn' engraved on one side, and "love from Joe" on the back. It is maker marked and is rolled gold. These pieces were apparently given to her by her second husband, Joe Dimaggio.

Also included is a final script for the film 'Clash By Night' 1951 - 1952, where she features in a lesser role. It did make her a star, though, as it coincided with the publication of her nude photos. The film set was invaded by reporters wanting to interview her. The final script is part leather bound and has black and white photographs from the film including some great ones of Marilyn herself. Her name is on the spine and appears to have been presented to her at the end of filming. She has added, in her own hand some extra notes, in particular Bakaleinikoff. Constantin Bakaleinikoff was the conductor for the soundtrack.

Provided with the lot is a large black and white poster on thick board, featuring Marilyn in a black swimsuit, though it is not the same one, as the one in the picture has a white 7 on the left hip (not visible in the photo).

Finally there are two letters to "Dennis" with whom Marilyn has been corresponding, in which she gives him the items of jewellery included. Both letters are signed, one "Marilyn" and the other "Marilyn Monroe". We believe that the letters probably date from around the late 1950s.
There is also another letter from 'W. Neale Lanigan' (famous for co-authoring "Film Autographs 1894-1941") confirming the authenticity of the signatures.
