Description

Gorgeous oversized portrait for her appearance in the gritty Asphalt Jungle, the film that helped propel her to stardom

Vintage matte-finish 11 x 14 photo of Monroe for The Asphalt Jungle, taken in 1950 by Frank Powolny, signed and inscribed in blue ballpoint “To Hank, May you keep generating, Marilyn Monroe.” Photo has been professionally restored, mainly along a horizontal fold to the lower portion of the image. In very good to fine condition, with a small tear to top edge, a tiny crease to facial area, and aforementioned restoration, none of which affects the signature or facial area. After appearing in several small roles in 1950, Monroe was cast as Angela Phinlay, the young mistress of an aging criminal. Her performance was well-received by critics, and after a small role in All About Eve, Monroe signed a seven-year contract with 20th Century Fox. A stunning portrait from early in Monroe’s career as she strived to achieve mainstream success. Pre-certified PSA/DNA and RR Auction COA.
