Bombshell Actress - Marilyn Monroe Signed Parchment Cut (Moseley Collection - Notarized Letter)
This item originates from the Roy Moseley collection. Moseley was one of the leaders in show business journalism in England. He wrote many books that appeared on the New York Time’s Best Seller List. Being an author in high regard had its perks, as he was closely connected to royalty and celebrities. Hence his notable work, “My Stars and Other Friends” provides a glimpse into the lifestyle us everyday people dream about.
During his career, Moseley brilliantly gathered in person some of the finest autographs in the world. Some were personalized to him as a testament to their respect and kinship. Every celebrity has a story as well as every autograph Moseley obtained. Each collectible will include a notatized letter of provenance. Here now is one of those legacy pieces for your collection.
From the Moseley collection is this bombshell actress Marilyn Monroe autograph on green parchment (from autograph album). Acclaimed among the most famous sex symbols in America, Marilyn Monroe was much more than a vivacious image. After a rough start in Hollywood, she went on to become widely known in her first leading role in the film Niagara, a dramatic performance for the young star. Shortly after, nude prints of her appeared in the very first issue of Playboy. After acknowledging that the photos were of her, the resulting publicity vaulted her fame. Monroe's status rose further, to that of an A-List celebrity, when she played the gold-digger, Lorelei Lee, in Gentlemen Prefer Blondes later that year. Monroe gained rave reviews from the song & dance scene where she performed "Diamonds Are a Girl's Best Friend", which inspired such stars as Madonna, Nicole Kidman and even Anna Nicole Smith.
