Monroe, Marilyn (1926 – 1962)

A scarce and interesting autograph note signed by Marilyn Monroe. Written in bold red ballpoint pen on a 2.5″ X 5″ card. At the top of the card is the typed caption (presumably a question submitted to her) ‘It’s a responsibility — being a symbol of sex’. Underneath, Monroe writes, ‘I didn’t say that. I said it’s a responsibility being an actress’. The last four words of her note seem to have been written in another hand (presumably a secretary’s), or perhaps in her own very rushed hand. A punch-hole affecting one letter and adhesion marks to the reverse, otherwise in very fine condition. Quite desirable in this format.
