Containing Multitudes Since 2004
Or more correctly Marilyn Monroe takes a swim in the nip. This is from her unfinished last film Something's Got to Give isn't it?
It is. In fact, of all the surviving footage from that film, it's the only scene where she looks anything like the Marilyn Monroe of lore and legend (in the rest of the footage she looks like a junkie . . . I can't believe, even if she'd finished the film, that Fox would have released it without extensive re-shooting).
Boy, she really was a beauty, wasn't she? It's a shame, the end she met.
There are moments early in her career, in "Asphalt Jungle", fo example, where her particular beauty is absolutely sublime - a kind of curious innocence mixed with sex oozing out of molecule of her body. This shot is probably the last of that kind.
