  • Advertising slip for the Marx Brothers' Love Happy film, signed by star Marilyn Monroe
  • Additionally signed by Harpo Marx's stunt double

Marilyn Monroe (1926-1962) needs little introduction. An actress, model and entertainer, she is perhaps the most recognisable of all screen icons. As such, her memorabilia is highly sought after, and continues to be widely collected across the world.

Monroe's sex appeal was one of her greatest assets and landed her the role in the Marx Brothers film, Love Happy. Groucho Marx recounts that while casting for the film, he asked three aspiring actresses to walk past him in a seductive manner. Whoever performed the most alluring walk would win the part: Monroe was selected.

While promoting this film, Monroe met several children at the Children's Home of Rockford, in June of 1949. Many can be seen holding promotional slips like this 3" x 7" page, signed on the reverse by Monroe in pencil.

The page is also autographed by Harpo Marx's film double. Both signatures were obtained in the lobby of the State Theatre in Rockford, Illinois. Some light wrinkling, creasing and toning, otherwise in fine condition.
