Marilyn Monroe Choice Bank Check

23 Jan

Choice bank check, 6 x 2.5, filled out and signed by Monroe, payable to Dr. Eliot Corday for $130, April 27, 1953. In fine condition, with expected bank stamps and cancellation holes (affecting the first few letters of her signature). Corday was Monroe’s personal physician from 1948 through the mid-1950s, during which time she was attaining great success in her career but steadily declining in her mental and physical health. Around the time of this check Monroe had begun dating Joe DiMaggio, and two of her greatest films—How to Marry a Millionaire and Gentlemen Prefer Blondes—were released in 1953. A wonderful example from this important period of Monroe’s life. Pre-certified PSA/DNA.
