A Marilyn Monroe annotated envelope and receipt for a black beret, 1954
A small envelope with a typewritten address noting "M. Monroe / 'M' Star Dressing Room" with Monroe's pencilled notes on it reading in full "Aunt Olive / VE8-7202 / Culver City / triangle / cross the street / 9430 Washington / close cleaners / 4:30 / work / tex 07111 / ex 3704;" evidently being directions; enclosed within envelope is a receipt from 'Twentieth Century Fox Film Corporation' dated "June 12, 1954" noting that "M. Monroe" purchased "1 Black Beret" for a grand total of "$12.94." Interestingly, Monroe wore black berets frequently - in her films as well as in her personal life. (Please note the envelope is somewhat yellowed due to age, but the writing on it is still sharp.)
