A Marilyn Monroe signed black and white photograph, circa 1955

A classic headshot of the actress signed by her in red fountain pen ink on the lower left-side corner "To Diana & Joe Ellen / Love & Kisses / Marilyn Monroe;" the signees possibly being the daughters of Second Unit Director, Joseph E. Rickards, who worked with Monroe on "The Seven Year Itch." Included is a handwritten letter of provenance from the original owner who stated that he received this photograph from Rickards' widow back in 1992.
