Back To Previous Page
(we are no longer accepting bids on this item)
Estimate: $3,000.00 +
Sold Price: $3,845.00 (includes buyer's premium)


Vintage ballpoint signatures of fifteen celebrity guests on a 5.25 x 5.25 dinner card for The Masquers 'Roast and Rib Dinner' to Charles Coburn, November 20, 1953, including: Marilyn Monroe, Jane Russell, Ronald Reagan, Nancy Davis Reagan, Willard B. Bill Scott, Robert Winsor, Francis McDonald, James F. Stone, and Charles Coburn; the opposite side is signed by Jane Wyman, Ella Logan, Freddie Carger, Shelly Winters, and one other. Includes a color glossy 7 x 9.5 photo of Monroe and Russell together in Gentlemen Prefer Blondes, signed and inscribed in black felt tip by Russell, "Robert, from the Blonde & Jane Russell." Double-matted and framed together to an overall size of 20.25 x 16.25, with a window in the backing for viewing the reverse. In fine condition, with some light edge stains. Both of Reagan's wives' signatures on a single piece (Ronald and Wyman were married from 1940-1949, then Ronald and Nancy were married in 1952), and three of the main cast of Gentlemen Prefer Blondes—Monroe, Russell, and Coburn—make this a one-of-a-kind item of great popular culture history importance.
