Very rare poster advertising ''New York's Birthday Salute to President Kennedy'' from 19 May 1962, famously remembered for Marilyn Monroe's breathless serenade of ''Happy Birthday Mr. President'' to JFK. Two-color letterpress poster in red, white and blue features a slew of famous performers including Jack Benny, Henry Fonda, Ella Fitzgerald, Judy Garland and Marilyn Monroe. The event was a resounding success, selling out all 15,000 tickets and raising over a million dollars for the Democratic party. Poster measures 14'' x 20'', printed by the Amalgamated Lithographers of America, as noted at lower right. Pinholes to corners and light creasing, but overall a very good plus example of this highly collectible poster, with another copy selling for $8,750 at Bonhams in 2017.
