    Marlene Dietrich Document Signed "M Dietrich". One page, 7.25" x 10.5", Reader's Digest letterhead, November 9, 1967, Lunt-Fontaine Theater, New York City. Dietrich signs her name at the close of a typed letter from Marjorie Nicholson, giving permission for them to publish an article of hers appropriately titled "How to be Loved By a Man," that had originally run in the January 1954 issue of Ladies' Home Journal. Document has multiple folds and a tear at top right with no paper loss. Fine condition.

    More Information: In the letter, Miss Nicholson offers Dietrich "Warmest congratulations on your outstanding contribution to New York's theater season!" At this time, Dietrich was starring on Broadway in her one-woman show, Marlene Dietrich, with music arranged and conducted by Burt Bacharach. She would reprise the play again the next season; it was filmed in London in 1972 for television broadcast. It is available on DVD as An Evening With Marlene Dietrich.
