Arthur Miller: His Life and Work

One of her new friends at the Actors Studio was Eli Wallach, and when she learned that he was starring in the play Teahouse of the August Moon (he replaced David Wayne), who had been her costar in How To Marry a Millionaire), she went to see it. She insisted on watching the John Patrick play from backstage, standing in the wings of the Martin Beck Theater because, she told Wallach, she wanted to see close up how stage actors perform a two-hour play.

After Wallach's performance they walked around the corner to Downey's on Eighth Avenue, another actors' bar in the theater district. It became a regular thing since Wallach's wife, Anne Jackson, was out in Los Angeles touring in a play called Oh, Men! Oh, Women! And not much later Arthur was joining Eli and Marilyn at the late suppers. When their photograph was taken, all three, and hung on the walls in Downey's, they inevitable found their names in a gossip column.

A dinner menu from Downey's Steakhouse at 44th Street and 8th Avenue in New York City, Dated 1978 and in fine condition, measures about 9 3/4" x 16" when closed. The covers of the menu are covered with photos of Stars and Celebrities that had eaten at the Restaurant. Includes Marilyn Monroe, Henry Fonda, Carol Burnett, Dick Van Dyke and dozens more. Downey's closed in the early 1980's

Can someone please locate the image we have of Marilyn and Eli in 1955 that looks like the one in the menu below ? She is wearing the white sleeveless shirt with short hair. And post it please?

Thank you (IMG:http://www.everlasting-star.net/boards/style_emoticons/default/clapping.gif) I love the smaller one with Eli. Where's Eli in the 1st image? The man next to Marilyn has Monty Cliff's profile. ??
