    Marilyn Monroe's personal working script for "How To Marry A Marry A Millionaire" dated 5 November 1952, annotated in Marilyn Monroe's hand. 119 pages of mimeographed typescript with blue paper covers printed with the film's original title The Greeks Had a Word For It, including several pages of script revisions.

    From "Marilyn Monroe" A Biography by Maurize Zolotow, Page 176:

    "The studio had paid Doris Lilly, a society authoress, $50,000 for the movie rights to a work of non-fiction, How To Marry A Millionaire. Assigned to do something about this expensive property, (Nunnally) Johnson set to work employing bits and pieces of characters and plot from two Broadway Plays, The Greeks Had A Word for It (by Zoe Atkins) and Loco (by Katherine and Dale Eunson). Johnson spliced it all with his own sardonic wit. The result was a flashing comedy of modern manners that retained only the title of Miss Lylly's vade maecum (pocket reference)."
