$795.00The most famous performance of the classic "Happy Birthday" song was arguably delivered by America's sex symbol fo the times- Marilyn Monroe - to one of the most popular U.S. presidents in the world's most famous arena. This is one of only a handfull of these invitation flyers for the event that we have ever seen in the last 43 years. The flyer advertises "New York's Birthday Salute to President Kennedy." This is the world-famous event in which Marilyn Monroe squeezed into ther fabulous dress and sang "Happy birthday, Mr. President." She is advertised on the bill among many other A-list celebrities such as Jack Benny, Danny Kaye, Maria Callas, Peggy Lee, Bobby Darin, Henry Fonda, Ella Fitzgerald and Jimmy Durante. Her performance lives on as one of the most memorabile events in history. These flyers are even more scarce than the programs and tickets to the event. Another of these flyers sold for $6,255.59 at auction, which we feel was considerably higher than it's true value although we certainly can appreciate the rarity of the item. Also the tape marks on the edges (see the condition description below) certainly is another reason why we are pricing this iconic item for less. Comes with our 100% guarantee of authenticity
