Original 8×10 Photo of Marilyn Monroe – Silver Bromide Print Never Pubished by Frank Powolny

Presented is an iconic image of Marilyn Monroe. It is an original silver bromide 8×10 print of Monroe from photographer Frank Powolny. Powolny was the chief portrait and still photographer at 20th Century Fox from 1923-66. He captured the image thousands of stars that made their way through the studio – stars like Janet Gaynor, Charles Farrell, Tom Mix, Shirley Temple, Humphrey Bogart, Bing Crosby, Joan Collins, Ann-Margret and many others. Many of his star and starlet photos found their way into newspapers, magazines and theater lobbies worldwide. He was also well known for a famous WWII pin-up picture of Betty Grable.In 1962, Powolny took the last known still photographs of Marilyn Monroe on the set of “Something’s Got to Give” a week before her death. Offered here is an 8×10 original silver bromide print on heavy weight warm tone matte paper. The print is from a famous photo set of Marilyn Monroe shot by Frank Powolny. Although other photos of this set have been published in books of movie stars, this particular photo is unique as it was never published and would have been printed for Marilyn’s personal use only. Of note, there is incidental writing on the photo presumably secretarial but not authenticated as her signature.

This is from the Danny Goodman collection. Danny Goodman was a pioneer in the truest sense. The man who spearheaded the promotion of the Dodgers when they moved out west, Goodman is credited with inventing the sports souvenir marketing industry. Spending his adolescence and entire adult life in the concessions business, Goodman was a natural to run the Dodgers marketing staff since he worked for several major league teams before joining the Dodgers staff exclusively. His official title was Vice President and Director of Advertising and Promotion. It was Goodman who developed the Dodger’s bobble head giveaway promotion. The executive was also one of Walter O’Malley’s first hires when he moved the team to Los Angeles.  Because he was a marketing dynamo, Goodman rubbed elbows with many sports icons. Offered for the first time are a number of Goodman’s treasured keepsakes from his long career with the Dodgers. AMI has the honor of offering some of Goodman’s personal mementos such as a Ty Cobb hand written letter, autographed bats signed to Goodman or his son Joe, game used bats from Dodger greats and other assorted photographs.  Away from the field, Goodman also organized almost 200 roasts of celebrities. Even Goodman was roasted a few times. Although he preferred a low-key approach, Goodman developed key connections through his years of service to the Dodgers. Permanently enshrined in the Southern California Jewish Hall of Fame, Goodman was a fixture in the Dodgers and left an indelible mark on the franchise.
