Marilyn Monroe Handwritten Directions to Sidney Skolsky's Home

 

Pencilled by the star on the torn-off and partially ripped back flap of a manila envelope, the directions read in full "415 N. Las Palmas / Bev Blvd 2 Bl E of Highland / take a left"; the address being that of Sidney Skolsky's house in the Hancock Park section of Los Angeles. Skolsky was a well-known Hollywood gossip columnist who early on befriended and aided the young Marilyn when she was a still a struggling actress in the late 1940s. Skolsky often acted as her date for industry functions and the two remained close friends for the duration of Monroe's life.
