Monroe and her little black dress

Sensational vintage glossy 8 x 10 photo of Monroe in a full-length seated pose, showing the actress reaching behind her head and wearing a black two-piece dress with sheer midsection, signed and inscribed in fountain pen, "To Tony, Love & Kisses, Marilyn Monroe.” Reverse bears a copyright stamp. In fine condition, with a small, trivial area of paper loss to the lower left border. This image was taken at the Savoy Hotel in London, July 15, 1956, during a press conference for the film The Prince and The Showgirl, a 1957 romantic comedy costarring Laurence Olivier. The film earned modest reviews and success at the box office, but is best remembered for the tension between Monroe and the production crew, in particular Olivier, the film's director and producer, who purportedly ordered Paula Strasberg, Monroe's acting coach, to be banned from the set. Monroe refused to continue shooting until Strasberg was allowed back. Pre-certified Beckett Authentication Services.
