John Steinbeck / Marilyn Monroe Fan Letter

Posted by

A letter from John Steinbeck to Marilyn Monroe on April 28, 1955, requesting an autograph for his nephew. What a fascinating slice of history.

Also, Sixty years after a secretary typed it up, Steinbeck’s message fetched $3,520 at Julien’s Auctions, one of a wide range of items culled from hardcore Marilyn Monroe collector, David Gainsborough-Roberts as well as the estate of Monroe’s acting teacher, Lee Strasberg.
