Description

    Marilyn Monroe Signed Agreement (Marilyn Monroe Productions, 1957). Framed and James Spence LOA (19" X 26").
    With the help of photographer Milton Green, Marilyn Monroe set up her own production company in January of 1955. After her split with Fox studios, Green counseled her on starting her won production company to gain greater control over the projects she accepted and the personnel assigned to those projects, such as director, cameraman, etc. Her place as president of her own production company gave her a much more important power than almost any actress of this era. In April 1957, before the release of The Prince and the Showgirl, she claimed that Greene had badly run the company and had held negotiations on his own and didn't inform her about it. She suggested a new managerial staff. Five days later, she replaced the lawyers of the company with Arthur Miller's personal legal advisor, Robert H. Montgomery, and one of his friends, George Levine. This beautiful and thoroughly authentic document has the signatures of not only Monroe but Montgomery and Levine and is dated July 24, 1957. Included with this framed document are other artifacts from the heyday of Monroe's fame. Accompanied by James Spence Authentication auction LOA. Very Fine.
