Happy Birthday Marilyn!

Today marks the birthday of Marilyn Monroe. In celebration of this Life Magazine on -line has released some never published photo's of Marilyn at the young age of 24. You can view them all here. They were taken by Ed Clark in Griffith Park which is located in Los Angeles.

We at GlamourSplash prefer to share some images of Marilyn in swimwear. These photo's are also courtesy of Life magazine.
