This weekend I picked up an old issue of Life Magazine from September, 1972. The cover has this fabulous picture of Marilyn and it's titled "Remember Marilyn", A photographic exhibit recalls the allure of a tragic star. We just had to share these images with you.
Marilyn was a shy person but the camera gave her confidence and possibly no one knew her better than the men who photographed her. One of them, Larry Schiller, assembled an exhibit of 185 pictures by 15 photographers called Marilyn Monroe: The Legend and the Truth.
The exhibit opened in Los Angeles's David Stuart Galleries before touring 30 U.S. cities.
Many of these small ones we show, were early publicity shots which displayed the young starlets son -to-be-famous figure. She was proudest however, or her flawless teeth.
She peered straight into the camera with absolute trust, the perfect pin-up. looking proud and architectural in her bathing suit and high heels.
More coming tomorrow....
