A Marilyn Monroe-dictated document, 1960
Typed on one page for a cable to be sent on the actress' behalf to a "Mr. Georges Auric" of the "Academie du Cinema" in Paris, France, note reads in part "...I am deeply honored at the invitation to become / an honorary member... / Sincerely / Marilyn Monroe;" a penciled annotation in the upper right-side reads "phoned 2/6/60." This organization apparently loved MM - they had awarded her 'Best Foreign Actress of 1957' for her performance in "The Prince and the Showgirl" two years before on March 31, 1958.
