The current Ziegfeld Theatre at West 54th between 6th and 7th stands only a few hundred feet away from the former on the same block, and is a movie house that often sees grand premiers. I was able to snap a few photos as the lobby is adorned with wonderful artifacts and ephemera from the theatre's grand past. Please click on the image to get a better view! You will recognize some famous~ and infamous names!

These candids of Marilyn Monroe were taken shortly before her death in December 1961 by photographer Len Steckler. The negatives of this charming collection had been found recently by Steckler's son who had decided to release them to the public. Marilyn had stopped by Steckler's apartment to visit a mutual friend, poet Carl Sandburg, and graciously allowed the impromptu shoot.

This one is brown mock patent leather and is only an inch wide at the bottom, yet it has four ball feet!
I love a good envelope clutch! This black mock patent leather one is paper thin, only 1/2 inch. What drew me to it is that it is super long~ 17 inches!
I was thinking of putting the brown one up on eBay, as I never carry it. If anyone is interested, email me and maybe we can work something out!
