Marilyn Monroe Autograph

Marilyn Monroe is recognized as one of the most famous women of the twentieth century.  A Marilyn Monroe autograph is coveted as one of the most desirable among movie stars.  Marilyn brought glamor and femininity to Hollywood.  Marilyn's financial story reflects her rise from humble beginnings to superstar status.  At one time she was one of the worst paid of the major movie stars in Hollywood. This Marilyn Monroe autograph check is an interesting association between Marilyn and the Screen Actors Guild. Marilyn's fascinating financial story is revealed in Money Secrets of the Rich and Famous.

Marilyn was born Norma Jean Mortenson at the Charity Ward of Los Angeles County General Hospital.  Soon after birth she became a ward of the State of California.  She was raised by a series of foster parents, who received compensation from the State of California ranging from $20 to $30 a month for Norma Jean's care.  Norma, Jean married James Dougherty, a Navy sailor.  They first lived with Doughert'y parents in the San Fernando Valley, and for a brief period in the city of Avalon on Catalina island.

Norma Jean found a job with Radioplane in Burbank, California.  While working at Radioplane she contracted for modeling services with the Blue Book Model Agency in Los Angeles.  Her first modeling job was as a hostess at an industrial trade show at the Pan Pacific Auditorium in Los Angeles.  A photo of Norma Jean (Marilyn Monroe) in her first modeling job is available on this website.  Within a short time, Normal Jean signed a seven-year contract with Twentieth Century Fox.  At the age of twenty-one, Normal Jean changed her name to "Marilyn Monroe."  Her acting career was never easy, but her appeal and fame rose to levels unprecedented in the history of Hollywood.

This Marilyn Monroe autograph check would look great in an album or absolutely stunning in a framed display for home or office.  This check reproduction is especially attractive when displayed with a photo of Marilyn Monroe in her first assignment as a model.
