This original CBS Radio Press release photo for the October 26, 1952 episode of “The Edgar Bergen Show” features Marilyn Monroe and Charlie McCarthy.

The photo includes the original press release sheet and snipe which reads: “CBS Radio Monroe-McCarthy Nuptials Nov. 9 ‘Edgar Bergen-Charlie McCarthy Show’. When luscious Marilyn Monroe pledges ‘I do’ to ex-Casanova McCarthy. Above, the loving couple discuss honeymoon plans.”

Indeed, during this episode of the comedy radio program, dummy Charlie McCarthy attempts to marry Marilyn, but his luck runs out when his pre-marriage blood test comes back as “only sap”.

Marilyn’s personal copy of the script from this radio program was sold at Christie’s The Personal Property of Marilyn Monroe auction for $5,019 in 2002.
