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.
