Monroe agrees to an amended 1950 contract with 20th Century Fox

Twice-signed DS, sixteen pages, 8.75 x 11.5, May 12, 1950. Amended contract between Twentieth Century-Fox Film Corporation and Marilyn Monroe in which the latter agrees to render her services "for a term of one (1) year, commencing on the 11th day of May, 1950." Signed at the conclusion in black ink by Monroe, who also signs at the conclusion of an attached supplementary letter confirming "mutual understanding and agreement relative to the amendment" of the original contract dated May 2, 1950. Housed and stapled within the folder for the original contract, listing two film titles in the upper left—As Young as You Feel and Love Nest. In fine condition.

The year 1950 was a momentous one for Monroe, whose briefly impressive turns in John Huston's The Asphalt Jungle and Joseph L. Mankiewicz's All About Eve caught the eye of numerous film executives. The 1951 films Love Nest and As Young as You Feel cast Monroe in supporting roles, with the latter serving as her first assignment under the newly amended Twentieth Century-Fox contract. An intriguing document signed by the fast emerging starlet.
