TLS signed “Marilyn Miller,” one page, 8.25 x 10.75, Marilyn Monroe Productions, Inc. letterhead, June 19, 1958. Letter to the famous Bloomingdale's department store in New York City, in full: "The bearer, my secretary May Reis, is hereby authorized to shop in my behalf. Please extend the courtesy of my charge account to her." Impressively matted and framed with a portrait of the glamorous movie star to an overall size of 14.5 x 27. In fine condition, with intersecting folds and some light creasing. Bloomingdale's was reportedly Monroe's favorite place to shop. Located in midtown Manhattan, their flagship store was a quasi-amusement park that offered the height of the 1950s retail experience. Monroe, or someone shopping on her behalf, would have found the most fashionable outfits and hottest products at the iconic outlet. This letter also boasts a scarce variation of Monroe's signature, using her name from her marriage to playwright Arthur Miller. An outstanding piece of pop cultural history.
