Life magazine discovered previously unreleased photographs of Marilyn Monroe taken in 1950. Here are my favorite three.

Dooder City said...

There is something always so sad about her....I see it in every photo. I know that sounds weird..

Dominica said...

She was so beautiful, lOVE the middle picture !
When I was 15/16 yrs old, my room was covered in MM posters and pics until I saw a documentary on her last 24 hours and I found it so creepy, the pics scared me and I had to take them all off my walls.
That's how this gigantic Richard Gere movieposter of American Gigolo came into my life !

JFK Jean: "makes me tingle in places I never thought possible" Can I steal that?

Tracey: I love your e-mails, I'm going there next.

Choo: Gemini, what an interesting sign. I don't think I know anyone born under it.

Dooder City: See, this is why I love you. How very perceptive you are! Marilyn was a sad little girl, all right. She wrote a book called "My Story", very sad.

Dominica: My youngest daughter was scared of Marilyn too. She swears she heard Marilyn (in a poster) laugh at her when she fell and scraped her knee. Where can I get one of those Richard Gere posters?

Mcreider: Ooooo, I loooove that movie, but it's because Jack Lemmon is a stitch in it.

Miss Yvonne said...

Girl Interrupted said...

I'm a bit obsessed with Mar-Mo ... such a glamorous yet tragic figure.

Plus there's the whole conspiracy theory about her death ... and you know I'm a sucker for those bad boys.

Hope you're well Diane, have a lovely weekend xx

diane said...

SkylerDad: Yeah, but who isn't?

Dapper Kid: Hey, welcome back. Are you a regular now?

The Fabulous Girl: Aren't you supposed to be on a shopping trip? How did you find computer access?

Vanessa: Thanks for stopping by. Your blog is fun, because you make everything look good.

Miriam: When I lived in France, they dubbed her voice and it destroyed the whole effect. Do they dub her in your country too?

Bella: Look who's talking. It's no wonder you have, like, a ba-jillion followers. You are soooo pretty.

Miss Yvonne: Me too. She's not wearing that much make-up, which is unusual.

love Maegan: Her style was sooo bombshell, kind of like yours.

Girl I: That was definately a hit. She had scheduled a press conference the following morning to expose the Kennedys. You deserve better than bad boys like that.

JFK Jean said...

You certainly can. It's not like I invented the term or anything hehe....

drollgirl said...

Mimi said...

I saw these and she is just so beautiful. I am intrigued by her life and every time time I see her I get a sense of sadness, her life was such a whirlwind.
