Early DS, signed “Norma Jeane Dougherty,” one page, 8.5 x 5.5, July 29, 1946. Supplemental model release, in part: “Received from Earl S. Moran the sum of $15.00, in full payment for all services rendered by the undersigned today. In consideration for this payment, I also authorize Earl S. Moran, his personal representatives, assigns, customers, clients, etc., to use my photograph or any painting, print, etc., made therefrom for advertising purposes, or for any other purposes of trade which Earl S. Moran or his assigns may see fit.” Signed at the conclusion by Monroe, “Norma Jeane Dougherty,” adding her West Los Angeles address under her signature. In fine condition, with a uniform block of light toning from previous display. Earl Moran, one of the great pinup artists of all time, hired Norma Jeane from the Blue Book Agency to model for him, paying her $10 an hour. Over the next three years, Moran would continue to hire Monroe, providing a fairly steady source of income for her during those erratic, early years. Monroe was once quoted as saying: ‘Earl saved my life many a time.’ On the same date this document was signed, Monroe made her debut in Hedda Hopper’s gossip column, being tied to a romantic affair with Howard Hughes. Pre-certified Beckett Authentication Services.
