Marilyn Monroe Signed Document 1952

12 Mar

Extraordinary DS signed “Marilyn Monroe,” and initialed ten times, “MM,” four pages, 8.5 x 11, October 7, 1952. An agreement between Monroe and Grove Productions, Inc., for her to “render…services as Guest Artist on the Edgar Bergen-Charlie McCarthy radio program presently scheduled to be recorded on October 18, 1952. from the Columbia Broadcasting System studios in Hollywood.” The rider stapled to the last page is of particular interest, with Monroe agreeing that Bergen could cancel the contract “if I conducted or do conduct myself without due regard to public conventions and morals or have done or do anything which will tend to disgrace me in society or bring me into pubic disrepute, contempt, scorn or ridicule, or that will tend to schock [sic], insult or offend the community or public morals or decency or prejudice agency or sponsor or the entertainment industry in general.” Signed at the conclusion in blue ballpoint by Marilyn Monroe and Edgar Bergen, and initialed by both ten times throughout. Two riders making emendations are stapled within, and several areas of text are struck through and revised throughout the document, all of which required their initials for approval. In fine condition, with expected document wear.
