#896 - Marilyn Monroe Estimate: $1,800+

Signed on the set of Gentlemen Prefer Blondes

Issue of Quick magazine from November 17, 1952, 72 pages, 4 x 6, signed inside in pencil below her image, "Marilyn Monroe." The blonde bombshell is portrayed in a white bikini top, with the humorous caption: "Interior Sec. Marilyn Monroe—'Her exterior ain't bad neither.'" In very good to fine condition, with some creasing and corner surface loss to the front cover, which bears a collector's notation in ballpoint; interior pages, including the signed page, are overall clean and fine.

Accompanied by a handwritten letter of provenance from Jordan Ingram, son of bit actor Edward Ingram, in full: "This autograph, by Marilyn Monroe, was acquired on the set of 'Gentlemen Prefer Blondes' in November, 1952. My father, Edward Ingram, had a small part as a forklift driver in the movie. He drives the forklift along the dock in the scene where they are boarding a ship. He was reading this edition of 'Quick' on the set, killing time, and came to page 19 as Miss Monroe was arriving on the set. He got up and approached her and asked if she had seen the photo of her in the magazine yet. She said 'no,' she hadn't, and asked to see it. After she had carefully read it, she thanked him and autographed it for him, and returned it."
