Sultry vintage matte-finish 7.5 x 9.5 portrait of Monroe taken during a Frank Powolny glamour shoot in 1953, signed and inscribed in fountain pen ink, “To Bob, Love & Kisses and I think you are wonderfull Marilyn Monroe” In very fine condition. With Full JSA LOA and One Of A Kidn Collectibles LOA.

According to the consignor this photo came from a California estate in Montecito with items that where from Robert Mitchum. There was another signed photo from a movie they both where leads in the same year 1953 “River of No Return" which was sold privately also inscribed to a Bob, thanking him for everything.

Monroe and Powolny most famously teamed up in 1953 for a series of stunning, artfully framed publicity stills for the 1953 film Gentlemen Prefer Blondes. Immortalized for his classic World War II pinup of Betty Grable, Powolny remained a trusted photographer for Monroe throughout her career, and is noted as taking the last known still photographs of the starlet during production of Something's Got to Give, one week before her death in 1962. A gorgeous image!

With One Of A Kind Collectibles COA.
