658. Marilyn Monroe extraordinary autograph letter signed as "Norma Jeane" to her friend Cathy Staub as she takes the first step toward stardom. (1945) Vintage original 5.25 x 8 in. folded, 2-page letter to "Cathy" handwritten in pencil and signed, "Norma Jeane". Written during a period of major transition in her life, Norma Jeane mentions a leave of absence from her job as a parachute inspector at Radioplane. She had recently been "discovered" by US Army Air Force First Motion Picture Unit photographer David Conover while working at the plant, and through his connections, had been able to get freelance work as a pin-up model. A few short months after writing this letter, Norma Jeane signed her first professional modeling contract with the Blue Book Agency, which brought her to the attention of Hollywood and set her on the path to worldwide superstardom. She writes in full: Thursday. My dearest Cathy, thank you for your sweet little note, why of course of course I like you dear very much, you know that. If I seem a little neglectful at times its because I'm so busy I don't seem to have any time to catch up on my correspondence, but I promise after this, I shall, do better, honestly I will. Jimmie arrived about three weeks ago and you can imagine how thrilled I was. I only wish he didn't have to go back. Jimmie and I went up to Big Bear Lake for a week and had a grand time I hope you and Bud will be down soon because I would love for you both to meet him. I've been on leave of absence from Radioplane. I shall tell you all about it when I see you honey or I shall write to you later. I have so many things I have to do so I had better close for now but I shall write soon. Tell Bud Hello for me. Love, Norma Jeane. Exhibiting age, wear and handling. In good condition. $6,000 - $8,000
