MARILYN MILLER
Her rare signature clipped from a return address and affixed to the bottom of a magazine page
Clipped Signature: "Marilyn Miller/212 W 4/N.Y.", 1¾x2½ Small piece of brown paper, probably a clipped return address, affixed to the lower portion of a magazine page with printed caption: "Dancing in the Spotlight - Marilyn Miller". Marilyn Miller (b. Mary Ellen Reynolds, 1898-1936) performed as a child in her family's vaudeville troupe, The Five Columbians. She adopted the name Marilynn, a combination of her own first name and her mother's. Miller, who could sing, act and tap dance, made her Broadway debut in The Passing Show of 1914, and was a headliner the following year. In 1918 she became a Ziegfeld girl, and - rumor had it - Flo Ziegfeld's mistress. From 1924 she starred in a succession of Broadway musicals, Peter Pan, Sunny, Rosalie and As Thousands Cheer (singing Irving Berlin's "Easter Parade" in the latter), performing to the tunes of Berlin, Jerome Kern and the Gershwins. Her film career was brief, mostly remakes of her musicals, plus a role in W. C. Fields' Her Majesty Love (1931). Married three times, Miller died of complications from a sinus infection at age 47. Before her years of stardom, Marilyn was a rare name in the US; she did much to popularize it. Norma Jean Baker became Marilyn Monroe at the suggestion of casting director Ben Lyon, who said she reminded him of Marilyn Miller. Miller's biographer, Warren G. Harris, called her "Ziegfeld's most dazzling star" and "the premier musical comedy star of the Jazz Age." Toned and creased. Edges lightly frayed and irregularly cut. Multiple stains around edges. Corners worn. Minor smudge on "Y" in NY.
