Looks like directors weren't the only guys trying desperately to catch Marilyn's attention. Here's a sweet letter from a New York Times journalist asking the blonde bombshell to please, for the love of God, respond to him. It's just the right amounts of frustrated and enamored. And hey! We saw "My Week With Marilyn"! We get it.

Check out part of the transcript below, or click on over to Letters of Note for an image of the original.

Dear (I think) Marilyn:

I write to the President of the United States and I get a prompt reply.

I write to the Vice President of the United States and I get a prompt reply.

I write to Sir Laurence Olivier and I get a prompt reply.

I write to Jayne Mansfield and I get a prompt reply.

I write to you and three weeks go by without even an acknowledgement of an important enclosure.

Who do you think you are -- Marilyn Monroe?
